    Whilst many love monette and as many don't, an I respect that, no one can say that monette instruments are poorly built or that there are any issues with the instrument that are down to poor design or build. Monette is the Bugatti of the trumpet world, and like a Bugatti, some find it too heavy or vulgar and prefer something else, while others simply cannot justify the price and thats fine. I totally agree with rowuk on this one and most others too.

    Well, playing the devil's advocate, you could argue about the Monette designs and their short comings.

    I mean, Monettes typically are quite a bit heavier than a "normal" trumpet.

    It is on purpose and it is for specific reasons.

    I contend that the same results can be achieved with much lighter materials than
    brass.

    IOW, excessive weight is a negative to me, even though I play horns that are heavier than
    "normal" because I like what the added brass does.

    Actually, he had a good post before. He decided to change it to that. I liked the one before.

    If I'm not mistaken...that same exact auction has popped up a few times in the last year or so. And I'm also pretty sure that it's been a fake every time....

    Maybe I am mistaken??? Can the experienced ebayers chime in?
