    Does anyone have any information about a Mastercraft trumpet made by the Peate Musical Company Inc? I found one of these trumpets and all I can find online with this name is a store in Montreal.
    Thanks. Jan

    "Made" may be a misnomer, "marketing" more likely. Such are what is known here as "stencils" and may carry "house brand" identity peculiar to the store that sells them. My first trumpet was such, though my investigation reflected it was made in Czechoslavakia prior to WWII although I bought it used in 1946 when I was only 10 years old from money I earned selling newspapers along with money given me for my birthday days before. That trumpet worked well for me until I was a Junior in High School. Can't get a good trumpet for $20 anymore.
