    John Packer sell a jupiter one on the net for £169. They are much improved from the original.

    I think you mean a soprano trombone... A slide trumpet is not quite the same thing.
    I agree - the Jupiters are a lot better than they used to be.

    Yeah you,re quite right, I bought one 2nd hand off fleabay and it's great fun to play with.....
    What's the difference then? (For the ignorant trombone player)

    I have one that is never used.

    My dad decided he would buy one for novelty value but I won't touch it cos it's got a trumpet mouthpiece and it messes me up.

    Lots of pictures of slide trumpets here:

    Trombone/sackbutt = two parallel slides
    Slide trumpet = single sliding leadpipe
