Should You Step-Up To A Performance or Professional Level Instrument?
As a student’s musicianship advances, they will need an instrument that will complement their growth. Jupiter and Azumi performance level instruments include some features found on professional instruments. These instruments provide a more focused sound with improved intonation and response. We emphasize great attention to detail in the design and manufacturing of our intermediate instruments, utilizing high quality materials and workmanship.
In addition to refined keywork our performance level woodwinds include features such as sterling silver headjoints (flutes) and Grenadilla wood bodies (clarinets). Our valved performance level brasswind instruments have tighter tolerances. The 1100 series double French horns, F-attachment trombones and 4-valve euphoniums include enhancements that will extend the range beyond those of standard instruments.
For those players who demand perfection, XO Brass instruments are professional level instruments made with the highest quality materials available, in state-of-the-art facilities, by exceptionally skilled artisans.
Whatever instrument your musician has chosen to play, KHS America provides the perfect solution to achieve their musical goals. Our unmatched “Guaranteed until you Graduate” warranty (10 years for XO Brass) will ensure years of durability and enjoyment of your chosen instrument.
