    Hello, I am taking a long shot here but... anyone here live in either Brisbane or Sydney that owns a Monette Trumpet?

    More than anything I would love to hear/see one of these in person. Anyone available?

    awesome G-man, you are an AUSSIE -- everyone here will love that aspect of your quest to play a MONETTE.

    I think both Vince Jones and Scott Tinkler both played Monettes at one time, dont know if they still do.

    Regards, Stuart.

    If they don't any more then the horns should just be lying around their houses somewhere. Do you have their contact details for G-man-?

    No I dont have anybodies contact details nor know anyone other than myself that plays the trumpet here. I was using trumpetmaster in hopes to have found a contact detail to someone that owned/had one. I just have the itch to hear one in person. It would mean very much to me to have that chance. I heard from a guy here that he knew someone that played a Monette at the Brisbane Conservatorium but no idea where he is or details to that guy. So Here I am saying "Does anyone out there that owns this trumpet exist on this forum from this area"...

    George-

    Sorry, I do not have any contact details, a phone call to the Conservatorium may open some leads. I think a Monette of Scott Tinkler's was for sale in Melbourne a year or so ago.

    Regards, Stuart.

    George, why not contact Dave Monette and see if anyone has offered this service to potential buyers here in Oz. I have a monette mouthpiece, but that as close as I get - I know of no-one with one.

    Does Brisbane, CA count?

    City of Brisbane

    We play there all the time. You can walk down Bayshore to South S/F, take a right up Grand Ave and visit Bronstein Music. They can get you a Monette ROFL.
