    for me it's mine. It probably won't be for someone else.

    Mine are the best for me, as I can't afford, nor do I presently need better.

    As some wise trumpet player said before, the horn chooses the player, and that horn would be the best in the world. The best horn is not the one with the biggest price tag, or Monette would be it. It is a horn that a player loves and will not sell it for any price.

    The best trumpet in the world is one that is incapable of any wrong note coming out of its bell. Never been made and never will be.
    Monette's trumpets are expensive, but Harrelson has a $17,995 Medusa horn on ebay as well as some very pricey other models. Monette no longer is taking orders for a decorated model which is extremely expensive. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I believe there are a couple Monette models which are under $10K.

    I ain't sayin' I wouldn't sell any brass instrument I have ... if the price offered twisted my left arm behind my back, and I can't believe anyone else wouldn't also. Yeah, even a Monette would zip out the door (someone else's door ... not mine as I don't own a Monette) if someone offered a million dollars to buy it.

    I saw a Harrelson Double Bell Bravura somewhere that was going for $50,000.
