Hey there folks. You will most surely want to check out the Monette website and place an order now. There is an announcement about sluggish instrument sales and how they've drastically reduced prices this season to bolster interest in their products. Most models have been reduced by about $3,000 making the smaller models fall into the competetive price range of other trumpets! Kevin p.s. April Fools! Prices are actually still rising at about $4,000 per minute.
