I like these as a great intermediate sax. Great Ergos, high F# key, nice original hard case. Made in Taiwan, Model JTS-889 (the model era makes me guess the year around 2010.). Sterling silver neck! Currently in factory pads that come with slight-domed metal resonators. These have fast action and you'll love it over most any student sax. They play a little louder with power and presence. (from the silver ringing)
Cosmetic Rating: 7.0 -- pretty nice. Minor tarnishing can begin on the silver body. Some wear on the lacquer keys
CASE: Yes, the original, brown, hard case in fair/solid condition.
All Student/Intermediate saxes come with, at least, a mouthpiece... and usually anything that arrived in the case with that sax.
PC Work Pending - Please inquire for an update. It will play great.
SOUND FILE: a Jupiter next to vintage saxes!
