    Careful Bob. Yes, he makes enough money to pay for that Monette. But the question gzent asked was when he made extra money after purchasing his Monette. I doubt it.

    (All of this being tongue-in-cheek, of course.)

    I think that the Rolls Royce comparison was spot on.

    If you have the money and it fits your sound concept go for it. I have chosen other equipment that suits my playing much better (I still own a flumpet).

    That's not true. This is how internet rumors get started.

    Not an internet rumor....but yes, still a rumor since I didn't hear it from the owner(s)' mouths.

    I know from Wynton this isn't true. FYI.

    Why post something you don't know that's true?

    Poor taste, IMO

    Seriously? It's an electronic gossip column. People post ridiculous statements on this website all the time
    without firsthand knowledge of the topic. This isn't a court of law, it's basically an entertainment medium
    that at times provides useful information.
