Hello Mr. Laureano... First, it's very cool that you choose to spend some of your time responding to this forum! I was wondering what you thought of that new Monette C trumpet you're playing in those clips on the Monette website? Not that this should influence your answer in any way, but I ordered one of those last May and I should be recieving it in a few weeks! I'm (obviously) very excited! I'd love to hear what you thought. Ironically, you've played the prototype Prana 1 and I haven't! Dave hadn't made it yet when I was at the shop, but after trying some different things, he said that was the horn for me. I imagine you can relate to taking Dave's word about choosing a horn! By the way, when I showed those Monette video clips to a non-musician friend, she said, "Wow! Will you sound like that?" Ohh if only... Jason.
