Jupiter ‘JTS-889SG’ Bb Tenor, #632,xxx

$1,599.00 - 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 2000.).  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: 9.0 -- Nice! Minor tarnishing can begin on the silver body.

Keilwerth 2001 ‘EX-90 Series II’ Bb Tenor, #113k

$1,849.00 - An intermediate sax with the big brother as the SX90(pro model). You'll love the pro build in quality and slick keys. As a fellow JK (couf) player, the main difference I noticed was the side Bb-C-E placement. It was very close to the body. Perhaps this is a design for smaller hands to not bump them.
SOUND: full of harmonics, like the JK sound is known for. "meaty, robust, round, full".
PADS: It has what seems like mostly original factory pads with nickel resos (domed with rivet center). they have a good pad life left and should be good, with normal, mild maintenance, for the about 2-7 years.
CASE: original case in good, working order; but note the wear and tear to the styrofoam backing in the interior.
This sax was given a recent tuneup on arrival here at WWS. You should be able to leave with this sax and enjoy it right away.
