I wanna try one of these Martin Committees just to see what all the fuss is about!!! There is no way i could ever afford one tho. Id just like to see what all the hype is about, are they like gold? So valuable mainly because everybody wants some... but if everybody wanted paper instead, it would soon eclipse gold in value! In fact i actually have a Martin trumpet, but not a committee a troubador was my first horn its old and in poor condition, here a pic of a good one. Martin Troubadour
Interesting quote: "It is generally believed that the quality of Martin products eroded after 1956 -- in an interview Chet Baker spoke about switching to a Connstellation at that time because a trip to the Martin factory did not yield a good horn."
