JUPITER JHR-452D 'Hornett'

single F,  convertible to B flat; or


single Bb, convertible to F


An excellent, ingeniously designed starter


instrument, ergonomically built for younger players


with smaller hands.  It is supplied with two


interchangeable sets of tuning slides giving the


option of playing in either F or B flat.  Adjustable


mouthpipe position, thumb and finger hooks allow


further adjustments to optimise the playing position.

· Lacquered yellow brass

· Bore size: 11.99 mm

· Bell diameter: 30.2cm

· Rose brass leadpipe

· Two interchangeable sets of tuning slides (F and B flat)

· Ergonomic wrap, adjustable in size

· Adjustable mouthpipe, thumb and finger hooks


Water keys on the mouthpipe and on the F


main slide


Silver-plated mouthpiece


· Hard shell case


  The horn is currently configured in F, with the

mouthpipe set lower down the body of the

instrument, giving a manageable, compact 'hold' for

a small young player.


The width of the horn from mouthpipe to bell can be


expanded to that of a full-size instrument.


  Replacing the 4 F horn slides with those of the Bb


horn reduces its weight, of course.
