Howdy fellow tubenetters,

Today I got to play a Jupiter 1110 BBb tuba. I must say I was very impressed with the instrument. NOw I only played it very briefly in the repair shop after it was repaired. I did not repair it.

It had a very nice full tone, good intonation and good response in the low and high registers.

This horn was never really on my radar, since I always liked the King 2341 for a good HS level BBb, but I will now add this to the list.

also while looking on the Jupiter website I see that they also make a 3+1 compensating Eb tuba with a 15" bell.

Has anyone ever played one of these?

In the last couple of months, one school sent two of those two me that were crumpled into little wads of brass...I un-crumpled them.
They play OK, I guess, whether-or-not pre-crumpled.
