Jupiter 416BL Pocket

“Excellent value for the money.”

Written on: 19/03/2009 by Jazzer (2 reviews written)

Excellent value for the money.
I am on my second one (silver plated) although the sound seems slightly brighter on my older laquered model.
Why pay the price for a Benge, you won't notice any difference! In my opinion, Slightly difficult for young hands to hold comfortably. I normally play a Yamaha trumpet -cornet as well as Conn, Olds and Besson models, but always carry the Jupiter in the car.

My pupils love it and my eldest granddaughter started to play trumpet on this model.

Buy one!… Read Full Review

Sounds great & plays in tune with itself. Free gig bag & excellent warranty. Best pocket trumpet for the money I own it! There are better pocket trumpets out there but you'd have to pay 2 to 3 times more… Read Full Review

“My Jupiter 416BL Trumpet is small and cute. It is a...”

Written on: 13/01/2008 by Kartawick (1 review written)

My Jupiter 416BL Trumpet is small and cute. It is a nice colour and is supplied an a good quality protective case. However,tuning at the bottom of the register is very suspect, and requires some ability to "lip" these notes into tune, although the rudimentary tuning slides/"triggers" do work provided you practice with them. The valves do not tolerate any neglect which explains why the manufacturer supplies a massive bottle of valve oil with each instrument. This is a cheap, fun instrument and… Read Full Review

Even though I haven't experienced these tuning problems & I had another pro play my trumpet with no complaints I believe you. Maybe you just got one that has problems.<br/><br/>

Jupiter 416BL Pocket: If you need a trumpet for real music, pay the money and get a Benge or Kanstul. If you just want to be a joke trumpeter, or annoy other musicians, get one of these… Read Full Review

Jeff Raglus's Response to 196304_jsoneal's Review

I&#039;ve got one and they ROCK! They have their own peculiar sound, they are quite bluesy and have an airey sound as well when played quietly.
<br/>I also play a Benge and a Taylor Flugelhorn , so I know what quality is... these just sit by themselves.
<br/>Great for busking and also the jokeish appearance sets them apart. People always ask me what it is.... it sounds and looks cute and creates interest. So there to the guy that dissed them!
<br/>J. the rag man.

Hi, I bought a Jupiter SPT 416 in the 1980s ! Price lots less then these days. I love the valves very good action and reliable. Nice sound from a Large bore horn. I also know quality trumpets I have Bach Stradivarius trumpet ,of course Jupiter is no Bach but much better than some student trumpets. Real intermediate quality and has stood the test of time. Go Jupiter!

Written on: 27/02/2004 by Jazzer (2 reviews written)

The Jupiter 416BL is without doubt the best pocket trumpet around at the price. Why buy the "next one up" (Benge) when you cannot tell the difference in sound and save £700 / £800… Read Full Review

Stj's Response to Jazzer's Review

Written on: 29/04/2006

This is a misguiding overstatement. There is definitely a difference between Jupiter and Benge. They clearly belong to different leagues in terms of intonation, beauty of sound and dynamics. Having played both, I decided it was worth putting extra money into buying Benge. I also find inpolite from the reviewer the practice of praising the instrument being reviewed by discrediting another, as well as lying about the price difference (which is approx. GBP 400 in fact)
