    I've heard lots of good things about the TT as well. JonPetter had some good words about it, then I believe he sold it to get a Van Laar. If I remember, he caught a video of Arturto playing one. I wanted to get one but they are kinda pricey and I didn't believe that, at my level, I had reason to throw that much at a horn. Truth is, my old trusted Yammie is a decent instrument, as was confirmed by my teacher. Plus, when one shows up with a pro horn, everybody expects him to play like a pro:-o

    Got a radial instead, it's at Anderson now being overhauled and plated. However, TTs are starting to show up on e-bay at more reasonable prices. At least they were, dunno what the trend is going to be now...

    If you link to Selmer Paris from the Selmer-Conn (USA) website, there is no mention of any brass instruments. But if you go directly to Henri Selmer Paris (Henri Selmer Paris), there are multiple trumpets shown. Maybe this is just a decision by the American company?

    I spoke with Jeff Christiana, director of marketing at Conn-Selmer at NAMM and he told me that Selmar would no longer be making trumpets as of January of this year and what has already been made is what's left and after that stock is gone that is it.

    I hope all of the brand blind get a guilty conscience.
