    I've actually wondered about this as well. One of my gigs is in this new genre of 'kindie' rock. Pop/rock that is not watered down ala 'The Wiggles' silliness, but with lyrics appropriate for kids. I took my red pocket 'car' trumpet once for fun and the kids LOVED it. They just thought the tiny size and the bright color were so fun. I get comments everywhere I go.

    Problem is, of course, the intonation is bad and the sound is not very full. I'd like to get a full sized 'color' horn but not the Chinese ones on ebay, but also not a Yamaha 8335! Ha.

    I always thought colored horns were silly and compromise the overall quality of a horns sound and composition. However, Ive heard very beautiful colored saxophones and trumpets, but Im sure they were a couple thousand bucks. Im sure the horn you posted plays very well.Miles Davis loved to play colored horns so they could match his clothes haha. If I were you I would shop around a bit and test some out , but its probably to find colored horns at music stores.You would have to search online and take a risk,but of course there is always a 30 day return policy.

    Why take it out on the poor instrument? Why not spray paint the violist? It's gotta be an upgrade, right?
