A Monette I tried at Chuck Levine's Washington Music. Must have been like in 1990 (?) when Roger Kyper was there; I had bought a few horns from Roger & when this Monette someone ordered through WM, arrived, he called me to go try it out. It probably was the very first "basic" model made...it was amazing & I ordered one from Roger. The guy thought I was kidding and never ordered one for me....to this day I'm pissed off about it...it was only like $1,500.00......now, they are 5 times that!
