New product

This saxophone gets top grades from both students and teachers. The ideal student instrument, it features a significantly improved and revised right-hand mechanism: the C/Eb rocker is now readily accessible. The new spring system ensures a smoother action of all keys on this sturdy instrument. It may be marketed by Jupiter as a student instrument but its sound and build are much higher than that.

This is the newest version of the JAS500Q and has a number of key differences to other and older saxophones with the same model number. The main change is the design of the bow, which provides a rich and fuller sound. These changes in the bow also mean lower notes including bell notes are clearer, easier to play and importantly really accurate in pitching. The whole model is wrapped up in the new “FQ” case series. The new 2 tone grey backpack case with fluorescent piping is both lighter than the original and in addition gives that extra feel of security that kids can be seen, especially when walking to and from school.
