    Not Italy, but Guido Basso?

    This is by Francesco Lazzaro Guardi (October 5, 1712 – January 1, 1793), a Venetian painter. :dontknow:

    Methinks when one is a good enough player, that manufacturers seek one out and at least offer cost reduction, if not a freebie in exchange for exclusive endorsement.

    Probably, but I know Wynton pay for his horns, and heard of other who has gotten some price reduction, not much though :-)

    I got a great reduced price on my Kanstul 1526 flugelhorn, but not from my relationship with Kanstul, but rather from a retailer I met at a trumpet hang that could get me a special price (26% off list) on the Kanstul due the his volume of sales which compares to the 19% off of list price that I found through Musician's Friend. An educated consumer is the best costumer.

    Which is not to say Wynton hasn't been approached with such a deal ... and if I were as good a player as Wynton, I wouldn't either.

    I do believe Wynton primarily plays a custom Monette, and thereby, if any, I don't think there is much "bribery" or "selling one's soul" in the deal. Still, I feel certain Wynton could make anyone of my student quality "beaters" sing like an Angel.
