I`ve decided that I`m aiming towards getting another MkVII as my second Tenor instead of a 10M and it`s this large bore Jupiter which has prompted me to do so as it`s got that warm thick deep sound along with modern keywork to contrast my Yam-62AG so the Jupiter is up for sale here .......

This horn is a 90s Taiwanese made Jupiter 787 Semi Pro tenor ,it`s been fully serviced and setup by Connollys (receipt provided with the horn) very recently, it had a few dents on the main tube which have been pretty much invisibly removed by these legendary dent experts, a few pads were replaced too so it`s all bang on .. Cosmetically it`s very good in deed, there`s some laquer pitting and scratches as expected but its far from being a rat .... Comes in the original heavyweight hard case (lovely condition) and I`ll throw in a scruffy Yamaha 4C Mouthpiece (cleaned) ..

Asking £450 which is a very good price for a fully serviced Taiwanese Intermediate tenor.. 5% of which goes to the cafe ...... carriage is £15 within the UK by courier , payment by bank transfer preferablty or paypal if you pay the fees . I will ship within Europe, PM me for a shipping quote .

I think we are all broke Ads, unfortunately I am too, just been on a spree in France and Italy and ended up with another 7 sticks, this looks a bargain for a modern horn.

John Myatt's used to send me their house magazine and I was surprised to learn that the Jupiter 700 Series was their best seller. I'd have thought that the cheaper 500 Series would have sold more. That's a good price for a tenor sax. Good luck with the sale.

Jim.

You're really going to have to stop calling them 'hooters' now that jbtsax has pointed out the American connotation

These 7 series Jupiters are very good saxes and easily on par with a lot of intermediate and pro saxes from other brands out there, i think whoever gets this will be lucky, the ergo's are great, intonation good, overall fantastic for the price, even if this was on sale for double i would think it was a steal. From what i know the 7 series and up from Jupiter are made in the same way and factory as the Keilwerth 'st' range and they are nicely made good solid saxes and this is a steal.
long story short, this is a whole lot of sax for a little price and is a very solid built nice sax.
best of luck with the sale, a bargain if i ever seen it.

Thanks a lot Ian .. The only reason it`s going is because I`m aiming at getting another MkVII , Like the MkVII (and MkVI come to that) the Jupiter 787 is a warts and all horn , they didn`t try to "sanitize" it to help beginners thankfully as it`s got all the blood and guts you could ask for (makes a Bauhaus seem small scale) , play with a very wide tip piece and let rip is what it does best but can smooch along with the best also ..

Having bought Ian's 'funky 787 alto' I can confirm that these are very under rated. You get a lot of instrument for your money - I'd be tempted myself f it's still for sale when next month's pension comes in :)
Not a lot of action on here this weekend...?

If I weren't saving up for another baritone I'd have bought this. I'm still tempted regardless.

Goodness me I have the Alto version and it's a great sax very well made tell you what better buy than a lot of the new saxes around. and it will still be good in 20 years unlike some of the Tinfoil saxes around now (drop it replace it) parts maybe!!! if your lucky. Somebody buy this Jupiter great money if your on a limited budget you can't go wrong. AND BY THE WAY I DON'T KNOW Ads. Why have I not bought it you may ask? I've got a few more expensive saxes for sale here to help offset the mortgage payments for the new sax coming.
