    I want to purchase a Monette mouthpiece, but I have no idea of what the price range is going to be. I'm really leaning toward the B2 standard or the B2 Prana.
    Please share the price you got your mouthpiece for.

    Thanks!

    A new B2 Standard will go for 200.00+. A new B2 Prana will go for 300.00+.

    Yep. They're not cheep, but then again, not made to be cheep.

    CLASSIC: 215$
    PRANA: 315$

    P.S go for the prana.

    Or you could go for a silver-plated Monette clone of either the standard or prana by Kanstul for $105.00 including s/h.

    I'd go with a genuine Monette, not a clone. The clones are almost never better the the real things.

    That's simply rediculous.

    If it truly is a clone of the Monette it will be identical for all intents and purposes. The feedback I have read is that the Kanstul copies are actually far better machined (no tool marks, etc.) than the Monettes.

    I personally have played on both, and there is absoulutly no difference. Would I rather play the Monette name?...yes, but I can't afford it, so I will settle for the same product from Kanstul. I love it
