Intermediate to pro alto, gold lacquer.
The Jupiter JAS1100 Alto Saxophone is designed for musicians ready to take their playing to new heights.

Sona-Pure Brass Neck Delivers Resonant Sound
At the heart of the JAS1100's vibrant tone is Jupiter's proprietary Sona-Pure annealing process, which treats the neck to enhance resonance. The result is an open, singing quality with superb projection ideal for soloing or blending in an ensemble.

Keys are meticulously leveled for a smooth, quiet action. Front F, high F# and tilting G# - Bb table keys grant access to an extended range. Multiple adjustment points, including palm keys, the rocker octave mechanism and stack adjustment screws, provide a customized setup for optimal ergonomics.
