Jupiter really makes some fine instruments at a really affordable price, I like this horn and it plays remarkably well but I think that the lightweight bell (straight version) is just a little tinny sounding , The upright bell has much
more core to the sound. But all in all this is a really cool concept for a horn, two bells with different characteristics.

Pros: Up/Dizzy bell and ability to tune horn at the bell
Cons: Tinny/thin straight bell?? Amado water keys.

I'm in the market for one of these just for the Dizzy upturned bell part. Woul be neat as a novelty for the stage, but being already a "bright" player I dunno if the thinner material straight bell would work for me. I already play a heavyweight horn with a bronze bell that kicks butt and has a big beefy sound to it. Dunno if something could be added to the thin bell to beef it up or not. I remember seeing old adverts for "tone rings" that used to mount on a trumpet bell. I'm also thinking if I DO get one of these, I may want to tweak it by raising the bent bell a bit higher to match Dizzy's, and then replace the Amado water keys with regular lever ones. Also may add one to the 1st slide depending on whether it fills up or not.

Pros: Fast, loud, good balance, in tune, cheap - 2x tuning bells
Cons: straight bell tone thins out at top C and above

Bought ex demo off Ebay sale, I expected little of this gimmic outfit with a tuning bell. I tried it out of the box and the bent bell with the supplied Selmer 3S mouthpiece was like a Xeno or Strad level trumpet. That wasn't the end of the surprises. The straight bell sounds weak with normal length mouthpieces - put in a short one like a Curry TC or Monette and its excellent. I was surprised when the Selmer 3S played better than my GR mouthpieces to.

I urge anyone buying this horn to strip it down and check the valves out completely. Mine came with horrible steel springs and felt pads that crush down to about 1.80mm. That meant it seemed low on the downstroke and high on the upstroke. I fitted slightly thicker Yamaha top felts and Ferrees valve stem felts, plus strad springs and the horn performance jumped forward again. The tuning bell really works well to. Fit and finish elsewhere on the horn was great, some of the inner tubing looks silvered as well. It even comes with extra valve button tops so you can pick indented silver or flat ivory style to press.

This is a great intermediate trumpet that reacts to the mouthpiece used with it quite a lot. Not as good as $2000 trumpets over top C. But then its $1200 new. I read on another website Schilke tuning bells will also fit this horn for lead playing - not sure if that's true though.

Pros: Amado Water Keys, Interchangeable Bells

This horn has excellent valves, intonation, sound, and it slots decently.
