The Jupiter JTR500Q is an updated version of their 408 model and has some of the features of their more advanced models, just at a more affordable price point.
The JTR500Q is a great starting point for anyone looking to take up the trumpet, since there are no hindrances to the player:
The valve block is well-constructed, enclosing the stainless steel valves which work remarkably smoothly.
The materials used to build the JTR500Q enable it to have an ease of playing rarely seen in trumpets of a similar price.
The alloy that Jupiter uses, along with the lacquer, is very hard-wearing and long-lasting, which reduces repair costs and the time spent away from your instrument in the long run.
Overall, the Jupiter JTR500Q is one of the top beginner level trumpets, retaining a mature sound whilst maintaining its strength in construction and resilience to environmental factors.
