I played Mk VIs for years and finally wore them out. I replaced them (Tenor and alto) with 767s and 789s. These are excellent instruments for the pro OR the student. At list price, they're a great deal. At discount, they're a steal. Those who relegate this horn to the student pile just haven't tried the Jupiter. The 767 and the 789 have all of the pro features found on most of the more expensive models. My advice for the serious player: for the price you'd pay for the supposed "pro" high-status horns, you can own two altos and two tenors, and have money left over for good mouthpieces. If you're a serious player, you will need a backup. I bought Jupiters and I never looked back.

This would include a very cheap saxophone with a free reed to use for playing good tunes for at least it is going to be about one year for it to last. The color should be gold or silva and if possible a shiny black kind. This is so the compassion of music would let the world know that music is a talent for most children or even teenagers.

Best alto for what I do

By gabriel gutierrez

from california, G-ROY

Comments about Jupiter 767GL Deluxe Alto Saxophone:

I'm first chair in advanced band and jazz and play the first music in all the bands even marching and my Jupiter alto is able to endure it all with full sound and pretty good tone.... I'll probably be using it throughout all my 4 years in high school and its good for beginners to and past intermediates I'm very happy with my alto and I know you would be too.... Though I had to get a new mouthpiece the one it came with isn't that great its loud and tends to squeak when it gets in the higher range.... peace out fellow Bandos.

GREAT SAXOPHONE

By Tyler Johnson-X3r24

from Hickory, NC USA

Comments about Jupiter 767GL Deluxe Alto Saxophone:

I have had this model of saxphone for 3 years. This is a great beginner sax. I use this saxophone for high school band, it has only broke once, it my fault. It has a real nice low sound and great pitch on high notes. This saxophone is strong and study. I would recommend this for any saxophone player, beginner or pro. Trust me.

Awesome Sax

By ZWM

from Ramer, TN USA

Comments about Jupiter 767GL Deluxe Alto Saxophone:

I started playing about two years ago on an old secondhand saxophone that hadn't been cared for properly. The keys stuck and couldn't be helped. I took it to a repair shop, but the man couldn't figure out what brand it was!! We finally decided that I should get another. After doing my research I finally decided on the 767GL. It was everything I'd hoped for.The keys have smooth actiion, and the sound in sweet and somewhat mellow. Sounds awesome with a Meyer Metal 6J mouth piece and Vandoren ZZ reeds. My band director still says that I need to blend in, but I have been having some trouble with that one. :)

This is a great horn to get you through high school

By Jose-wId4w

from Chicago hieghts ,illinois

Comments about Jupiter 767GL Deluxe Alto Saxophone:

I had purchased this horn in September of last year 2004 and so far I am very satisfied. The mechanics and sturdiness of this horn are great. Has held up very well. High f# is a nice touch as well as the tilting b flat key. This horn really sings out of the box and will continue to. I would recommend it for any kind of music. It would serve a great marching band horn.

THIS SAX FITS ME!

By Keysha

from Calumet City, IL

Comments about Jupiter 767GL Deluxe Alto Saxophone:

I think this sax is the best thing that ever happened 2 me. I can't wait until marching season comes back around because this is what I have been looking' for. I would definitely recommend this. Now I have the extra push that I wanted w/my other saxes. Instead of settling for 3rd chair, I am on the verge of going for 1st chair. I am a freshman w/high expectations to get the 1st chair. I'm pretty sure that I will be able to do it with this sax. It took some time to get used to the F# key, but I love it.

Great Sax, Great Price, Well Built!!!

By lazarsci

from Indiana

Comments about Jupiter 767GL Deluxe Alto Saxophone:

I used to play saxophone 30 years ago. So when my son started to play I also started lesson again. I purchased a few vintage horns and had them restored. I happen to stop in to WWBW and tried a Jupiter 767GL Deluxe Alto as well as the Woodwind Paris Alto. I fell in love with the Jupiter. Great sound, great price, very well made. The horn was perfect out of the box. Having read a number of reviews of experts that said that Jupiter horns were not well made, I took my time and gave it a very close inspection. All I can say is they must have sampled a Jupiter horn from many years ago. This horn is heavier and better put together than my vintage Martin, FE Olds or Buescher. It has a rich sound and plays in tune up and down the scale.The bottom line is the Jupiter 767GL is a great horn. Even though it is at the low end of the price scale, I consider it much more than a student horn. Just add a good mouthpiece and ligature and it will serve you well for years.

Great Sax

Comments about Jupiter 767GL Deluxe Alto Saxophone:

I've been playing for 20 years. Played Vito's, Yamaha's, Buescher's, Conn's, Selmer's (mk6, old action 80). Picked up this Jupiter about 6 years ago (my 1927 Buescher was stolen). I added a JD Hite Premier mpc and I have been playing this setup ever since. I have gotten good comments from seasoned musicians with tons of experience with big bands like Count and Ray and they say my tone has greatly improved. For the money, I compared this horn to the big boys and it wins hands down.

Great sax at unbelievable price

By Corey A

from Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Comments about Jupiter 767GL Deluxe Alto Saxophone:

I got this sax recently, and I love it. I tried many different saxes, and there were only 2 saxes that beat it. The first was a Keilwerth, not sure which model, but it was around 3000$. The second one was a Selmer, comparable in price to the Keilwerth, at 3200$. This sax beat out all student models, including the pricey Yamaha YAS-23. This horn is so good that I don't even consider it a student model. I have only 1 complaint, and that is the mouthpiece. The one that comes with it, a Jupiter 4C, has a VERY small tip opening. The sound is thin on this mouthpiece. I bought a Meyer 6 medium, and it fixed that. With a more open mouthpiece than the stock one, you can get a beautiful full sound. The downside is that the Meyer mouthpiece isn't cheap, it is around 90-100$. I use Vandoren reeds, because my Rico Royals didn't do the job. This sax, the Meyer mouthpiece and Vandoren reeds, they can't be beat for the price.
