Don`t know Monique, but there`s some photos I saw on Internet, and there`s a Pocket trumpet in there with a Silver and Brass full size. I just bought a Jupiter Pocket Trumpet about 2 months ago, and the case looks the same, and so does the trumpet. So It may be a Jupiter copy??!!? Not sure. Jupiters are OK, and recommended for student/intermediate horns. The Pocket has an almighty sound, and surprised me, as most I`ve heard say that Pocket Trumpets are crap. It goes well with a Wah-Wah mute.

Hi Blake,
The best I can find is that V.J. Rendano Wholesale Musical Instruments, seem to be the distributor for Monique. They appear that they may be made in Korea, or in Asia.

I got mine in Melbourne Australia, from Brass & Woodwind, and they sell for less than AUD$700. There was choice of Lacq Brass, Black with Gold trim, and a Rose Gold. I got the Rose Gold Lacquer as it blew more freely.

A good price, and fun piece to play.

I play Bari and Alto sax, and I know what monique is. They mostly make saxes, although they do make other instruments. i don`t know their reputation, b/c I`m trying to see if anyone knows how good they are on my own forum.

Moniques are a great brand. They are not a very big or popular brand but they play quite well. I`ve played a monique alto for 6 years and find it comarable to the yamaha and the selmers. I just recently bought a soprano and am pleased with its performance as well. However, I have to stress that you distinguish between the two types of Monique:The Taiwan made and the Chinese made. The Taiwan made is the one that you want, as the Chinese made instruments are made of soft metal and go flat in a matter of months. Also, a proper mouthpiece/reed combination is key to a great sound. Good luck.

There is Monette, but they are really expensive trumpets, as one put it in another thread "A 20,00 dollar boat anchor" (reffering to its weight)
