JooJazz

Versatile, from Funky to Mellow

Surface sanded, lacquered,
Mouthpiece in rosé gold (custom made)

The JooJazz – developed by and with Joo Kraus, combines a simple and elegant design with symmetrical basic shapes. Pure copper is used for the bell. Musically, the instrument leans and orients towards jazz and U-music, from funky to mellow. Good intonation, not too little resistance, stable even when it’s pushed in the dynamics.

  • Hand-hammered copper bell with a diameter of 140 mm made of one-piece, wall thickness 0.5 mm
  • French bead rim
  • Valve section in brass with stainless steel valves
  • Bore: 11.7 mm
  • Reversed leadpipe
  • Piston heads with mother-of-pearl insert
  • Amado water keys on the tuning slide and 3rd valve slide
  • Sanded finish

In terms of sound, it makes me play in all shades from butter-soft to radiant. […] A wonderfully mature instrument!

The Joo Series

The Joo series is true to the spirit of its namesake Joo Kraus. Modern, refined and powerful at the same time. From the copper bell of the JooJazz to the lightweight braces or the aerodynamically optimized bows of the Jooleo. This series breaks new ground and expands the musician’s color palette with original ideas. At the same time, the instruments remain wonderfully clear and movable. All instruments of the Joo series impress with their distinctable modern and mature timbres.
