When we talk student horns we are thinking bright tone that will project and a horn that is easy to get sound over the full range of the instrument, especially in the lower end, low C through B and Bb. When the XO Jupiter 2069GL Artistic arrived by courier I was unsure about what to expect from the new top of the line Jupiter Pro series Alto. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the cardboard box and…
