Having owned this flugel for several weeks, I think I can give an accurate assessment from an “intense” amateur’s point of view. The pictures don’t do this horn justice. The gold lacquer is truly beautiful. The valves are as fast or faster than other brand trumpet, cornet or flugelhorn I currently own (Getzen, King, Yamaha, respectively). The third valve slide and trigger are fast and move smoothly. It is a bit of a stretch for short fingers. I don’t use it very much because the horn is very well tuned. The only thing I would change would be adding a first valve slide water key. It loads up quickly, especially during warmup. I remove and dump it regularly. The slide has a precision fit and is sometimes difficult to reinstall. That’s the only reason I gave it four stars. Overall, this is a great horn. I am very satisfied.
