Jupiter Join the Band! Wind Instrument Try-Out Kit

This durable, compact, and affordable trial pack is an ideal tool for introducing school band instrument mouthpieces to prospective incoming band students.

Including components to test for aptitude and gauge interest in flute, clarinet/saxophone, trumpet and trombone, the kit provides a convenient solution for many possible testing scenarios. KHS America Director of Education, Dr. Peter Loel Boonshaft states, “If there ever was a perfect time for a product like this, it is now! It’s a wonderful way to help recruit students in a safe, easy to sanitize, and productive way. Whether used in a virtual environment or in person, it will greatly improve our ability to recruit students in the world we find ourselves!”

The components are easy to assemble and can be cleaned in a dishwasher or with soap and hot water. The convenience of the compact package is also being recognized as a benefit. “Packing, transport and set up for testing events at multiple elementary schools will be much easier!” notes Tonia Mathews, Band Director at Clint Small Middle School in Austin Texas, “I am very excited to use this product!”

The Try Out Kit includes:

  • Flute Headjoint
  • Woodwind Mouthpiece with Synthetic Reed to test for Clarinet & Saxophone
  • Brasswind Mouthpiece with Two Cup Sizes to test for Trumpet, Trombone, Baritone, or Euphonium.

While these mouthpieces are not designed to be used in place of actual instrument mouthpieces, they are quality tools for determining what instrument will best suit students. All mouthpieces are dishwasher safe, or simply wash with hot soapy water to clean and sanitize.
