Any feedback out there on the Jupiter 800 series tenors? The price is so low one wonders where the corners are being cut.
They're not cutting corners. They're made in Tawain, so that keeps the price lower and they sell a lot here in Europe so maybe the volume of sales has something to do with the pricing also.

I had a rented Artist series for two weeks and though it was a very good sax.
Here is some more discussion: http://www.saxontheweb.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=38955&highlight=tenor

Thanks Gary.

For some reason which i dpn't know Jupiter doesn't have as good a reputation in the US as i.e. in Germany.
Recently a Pro Player played my Tenor and he sounded really great.

I've played them before. Good husky sound in the lower to mid registers. The high's are a little sharp and thin to my ears, but they are considerably better than the 700 series. One could try a new neck to correct the upper register.

Has anyone else tried the XO yet? I tried one of the new altos and was very surprised by how well it played. Bluesax, you've had yours for a few months now, what do you think of it? By the way, I think that Jupiter's rep in the states has been improving over the past few years.
