I'll just be blunt and say when it comes to an instrument, I have to really be attached to it. Also, I'm most sensitive to touch than my other senses. Therefore, I have been trying to find a great horn that isn't a monette that has this kind of finish or feel:
Not necessarily the color, but just that antique lacquer metal feel.
Do you all know of any great and realistically priced trumpets of this kind?
