    Play a few before you get too excited - they may not suit you or your playing style. I've played a few and still don't feel the need to own one. However, the second I played a V Raptor I wanted one. This doesn't mean I think Monettes are bad horns in any way, but they don't suit my needs like the one I'm playing, and I spent under $5k on two of them (one was used) so I can afford to have a back-up. That makes me happy, too.

    I owned a Monette Ajna many years ago! And it didn't work for me! Today, I would really love to try a Monette MF Prana!

    Just remember, it's the player that makes the sounds and the music, not the hardware.

    Only the lighter horns are available in silver:
    MF Prana, XLT, LT. The heavier horns are only available in raw brass and gold. Monettes gold plating is copper, then silver then gold plate on top.

    Here the details:
