    14 grand for a used first generation raw brass Prana is too steep in my book. For sure a great horn, but I'd rather wait a year and get it at least $3000 cheaper - and built for ME.
    I don't know who it was built for, but the better they are, the harder it was played.

    I think Pranas is around $10,500.00 today! And it's probably Dave Monette that have bent the leadpipe! If you play with your trumpet pointing down, this will get your trumpet point up..:-)

    the horn on ebay is a scam. Hotdeal still owns this one.
