Monette Trumpet

Monette Trumpets...?

Is there anyone who have first hand knowledge on playing a Monette Trumpet and how it compares to the likes of a Yamaha Xeno, Schilke horns...? I love the way the Xeno plays, it's free flowing, non-restrictive the sound quality doesn't fall apart as you assend into the high register... Just wondered if there are any Monette players out there who can school me

Monette trumpets are very well-designed and they are great instruments. They have great response and intonation, and they play well in all registers. I think that they lend themselves very well to the solo player, rather than to a section player. The exception would be when the entire section is playing a Monette trumpet.

They are expensive, starting at around $7,000.00, new, in raw brass, and going up according to the model. The most expensive is the Prana Decorated model, which has an integrated mouthpiece, and the sky is the limit as to how you want it decorated. It is a gorgeous instrument! There is also a very long waiting period for a trumpet to be built.

In my opinion, while they will offer the same playing characteristics of the trumpets which you have mentioned... Yamaha Xeno, Schilke, etc. .. they have a unique sound quality or timbre, that (again, in my opinion), does not blend well with other trumpets. However, you really have to play them to know if they are right for you. Chances are, there is someone near you who plays one. Ask them if you can try theirs. I will also mention that if you play a Monette trumpet, in my opinion, you should absolutely play a Monette trumpet mouthpiece.

If you are considering buying a Monette trumpet, give Dave Monette a call and schedule a visit to the Monette factory. The price of your airline ticket, and the whole experience of being able to try different models, and mouthpieces, to match your needs and your playing style will be money well spent.

There is a company that does tend to have a selection of used Monette Trumpets, Thompson Music, in Omaha, Nebraska. Here is a link to their website:
