Perfect for Advancing Players
This Jupiter JTU1020 tuba is designed to provide you with a reliable instrument, capable of taking you through your musical career. The stainless steel pistons provide a smooth, fast action to help improve your agility and playability. Unlike other tubas at this price, the leadpipe on the JTU1020 Eb tuba is made from rose brass. Rose brass is popular among orchestral players for its ability to achieve much darker sounds than yellow brass can. This is because rose brass contains a higher amount of copper than yellow.
To ensure your tuba lasts as long as possible, you should get it serviced at least once every two years. This can be incredibly expensive and time-consuming as it can involve resoldering joints. Unlike other tubas, the Jupiter JTU1020 has a removable valve block and leadpipe which would make servicing and maintenance a lot cheaper than normal. These key attributes are enough to motivate and inspire you to want to perfect your skills and musicianship.
Jupiter's hard shell case offers a protective lightweight design that is easy to carry. Whether you're going to rehearsal, gigs, or concerts, this case will protect your tuba from scratches and knocks. The hard shell case will keep your instrument looking, feeling, and sounding like new for longer. Also included is a mouthpiece so you can start playing straight away.
Jupiter's goal is to ensure every musician is happy with their Jupiter instrument. Even their student instruments offer outstanding quality, specially designed to assist you to progress as fast as possible. By working closely with teachers and professional musicians, Jupiter continues to find ways to improve their designs to ensure everyone can be comfortable with a Jupiter instrument.
Jupiter pride themselves on recently being ISO 9001 certified. Their promise to the planet has led them only to use environmentally-friendly ways of disposing of water. All Jupiter wind instruments are even built using lead-free solder! Unlike some other companies, Jupiter has a huge range of spare parts in stock.
