Jupiter 314L Soprano Trombone - Slide Trumpet
The debate rages on. Is it a slide trumpet or a soprano trombone? The facts of the case are that it is a valveless brass instrument in Bb that is equipped with a slide and that uses a trumpet mouthpiece. It will be a fun and entertaining "stunt" instrument for either a trumpeter or a trombonist. The trombonist will have to be accustomed to the mouthpiece and the trumpeter will have to learn trombone slide positions. The Jupiter 314L Soprano Trombone may ignite a debate, but it may also light your fire.
That said, get one! They are a good time waiting to happen. This is a well-made instrument, and if you decide to develop your skills with it, you will only be hamstrung by the instrument's inherrent peculiarities relative to your own brass experience. Any frustrations you encounter will come from learning the new mouthpiece or the slide, not from any inherent flaws in the instrument. It sounds good and plays well. Come and get it.
