      Comments about Jupiter 378 Series 3-Valve 3/4 BBb Tuba:

      This horn is just okay. It's good for beginning and second-year band students, but beyond that...just, no. The instrument is a bit flimsy and sounds a bit tinny. Not to mention, the valves are quite sticky, even with oiling. And spit always gets caught in the second valve.

      On the plus side, for a high school tuba player like me that can't lug their 4/4 tuba home for practice (or, if you're like me, your 4/4 King with detachable bell and two cases), this horn is nice to have. It's also quite fun to get out this horn and play louder than you normally would (to overpower those pesky trumpets and trombones). Also, the case constructed very well and the horn itself is aesthetically wonderful, but the playability is just lacking.

      Comments about Jupiter 378 Series 3-Valve 3/4 BBb Tuba:

      Over all its a very durable long lasting beautiful sounding instrument for beginning or intermediate musicians.
      One of the features this tuba has is a beautiful silver finish!
      This tubas sound quality is magnificent. And it is a very durable instrument, trust me iv had my same Jupiter 378 series BBb tuba for 5 years now.
      Considering its price and the tuba its self its a very good buy for beginning or intermediate tuba player.
