WTB: Monette 98

Postby bort » Mon Aug 22, 2016 3:58 pm

Please let me know if you have a Monette 98 you would be interested to sell -- must be in excellent condition. I'm not against buying one brand new, just trying to avoid having to wait 3-6 months for it to be made.

And please save me the usual TubeNet speeches that comes with the utterance of the M-word. I had a chance to try one and I really liked it, and would just like to buy one. :tuba:

Bump!

Also, are there any stores that sell these (besides Thompson Music, who has just about everything except for the 98)?

IIRC, Baltimore Brass has had a Monette sitting on their used MP shelf for a while. Don't remember what model, but I'm sure they'd be glad to check for you.

I called BBC, they have two used/excellent condition Monette 94's @ $200/each. Not something I want to pursue, but a good price!
