    But, but, but .... it is 50% off. Only 10K! Why, what is 10K for a horn Mr. Monette made for HIMSELF!

    But alas, I too am less adept! :D

    Well, I just need to forget about getting that Callet, or the Zues.....I need that Monette. I'm sure I can afford it.

    Hmmm,

    10K can buy 2 gold plated Eclipse horns or almost 3 silverplated ones.

    A Bb
    A C
    and a flugel

    Or I can have a 7lb jazz soloists horn...

    It's just a hard decision, isn't it?
    I don't know if I'll be able to make up my mind :lol:

    for $10K you could buy about 4 Bachs and pick on which one plays the best..

    Better yet, you could buy any top of the line custom horn (WT, Lawler, Calicchio, Eclipse, Taylor, etc) and get a nice Case* for it.

    *Case would be a nice late model car.

    Thats it! I want an Olympus (for obvious reasons) and a used PT Cruiser "case". Can I convince my wife that the PT Cruiser is a case? Or the IRS for that matter. Oh well .....

    Tragedy here, no sale, reserve not met.

    $10,200 doesn't make the cut.
