Re: Is a Anaxa Alto a good brand?
Never heard of it. I would say run away as fast as you can. The general rule of thumb in getting a new horn is stick with a company with a name behind it. If price is a factor for you, there are some horns that cost significantly less than others while still being awesome horns.
I suggest that if your budget allows it, go with a new Keilwerth, Selmer, Yanagisawa, or Yamaha. If they are out of your range fer a new one, a used one is equally good. Also great are the horns from Jupiter, Antigua Winds, and lots of Vintage horns.
