I've never been a big fan of the Jupiter clarinets, but the local store is running a pretty good deal right now, and we could use a few for marching band. My question is: The 1100S is on wwbw as an intermediate horn for about $1400. They have the 750NA as a STUDENT horn for just shy of $2000. Why would an intermediate horn be cheaper than a student horn?

Clarification - both models are wood. The local shop is offering a REALLY GOOD price, FAR below what wwbw.com is asking. Otherwise I would insist on Buffet or Yamaha.

Is the price too good to be true? Are they getting rid of stock instruments they can't sell, or are they legit trying to get your business? Remember also - Jupiter has one of the best warranties in the business, so repairs will be MUCH cheaper on those horns!

Probably the former. They are offered on a "weekly specials" email they send out to area directors.

Contact The Band House in Wylie or Texarkana. They will give you a much better deal. I got my 750 student instruments for around $600 each. They will send it to you if you're not close by.

We have the Yamaha 450N clarinets in our program for about $1000 each after a quote. Great instrument for the money.

Plastic vs wood?

Both wood. I've never seen a synthetic instrument considered "intermediate." Only "student"

I really like Jupiter, but for that kind of money, get a buffet...

No way. For that price, get a Yamaha.

Respectfully disagree. While the pro-line Yamaha (CSVR) is great, all of my E11s play way better than the entry / intermediate Yamahas. On the other hand, the professional Yamaha has had me reconsidering my R13 several times.
