All,

Once again thank you for all the replies and advice.  I was not saying everyone was void of reasoning in my earlier post; just hoping to hear more.  I found one to try next week and will post opinions here afterward.

Cheers,
Leo

I'm not sure if this is worth anything to anyone so I wanted to see if there was any interest.  I have 1928 Silver Plated 7 in King New Proportion bell section with threads for a 2B slide.  I can send pics if anyone is interested, just shoot me an email.  No price, not really sure what to ask.  Feel free to contact me.

All,

To begin with I appreciate all of your replies.  I was hoping this wasn't going to turn into another typical Monette thread, i.e. a thread to tell one that they are overrated and not worth the money with little reason as to why.  If you have a complaint can you tell me why specifically it was too much money?  To further this though, maybe I could have been more specific as to what I wanted to know.  I currently use a Rath 1.5 W or 1.25 W for commercial and jazz type playing. The wider rim is comfortable for me in this type of playing and I love the sound.  I am looking for a bigger piece that gives a darker and thicker sound yet still retains a comfortable shape. I have been Using A Giddings and Webster Chinook for this, the sound is great but is uncomfortable to play.  Back to the Monette, this is NOT a 300 dollar mouthpiece and I am looking at a PRE Prana which can't be bought new.  Can anyone give their opinion about playing a Monette that exclusively pertains to pre prana pieces?  Finally, I do not need a lecture that explains I'm the biggest variable in sounding good, take my word for it, I know.  I am putting in the time, I'm just looking for the right tool for a specific need.  Thanks again guys!

I am looking at a Pre Prana Monette BT-1 bass bone piece right now.  I was hoping someone could offer any insight as to the differences between this and the newer prana pieces.  I have heard from a friend that own lots of Monette trumpet gear that the pre prana pieces are more conventional and can be played by a wider variety of players.  If anyone knows spec differences or has played both I would appreciate the input.

Thanks,
Leo

Looking to move these.  Price Reductions for multiple pieces bought; e.g. 2 mouthpieces knock off $10, 3 mouthpieces knock off $20......
If you want to pick out a lot, a better bulk deal can be made.  This would be a great way to test the water on some different sizes and designs.

Cheers,
Leo
