G. Scott Jones

When I started working on my D.M.A. I needed a new tenor trombone. I tried nearly every brand and nothing felt, or sounded, the way I wanted it to. Then, I played an intermediate Jupiter and fell in love with it. I was finally able to move air without feeling restricted. It was responsive and bold. I could freely play, without focusing on mechanics. Within two years I was playing exclusively XO and Jupiter trombones. XO works for me. Their products are free-blowing, responsive and durable.
