Description

This deal won't last long! We just got this pre-owned Adams Sonic flugelhorn in lacquer and it's in great shape. There was a small dent in the bell that's been removed. These are awesome playing professional flugelhorns, and a favorite with our customers. If you're looking for a flugelhorn that's a bit nicer than our Doubler's flugel but aren't ready to spend the money for an Adams Custom Series horn, this is the perfect choice.

The Adams Sonic Flugelhorn: Professional Quality, Unbeatable Price!

The Adams Custom Series flugelhorns are some of best (if not THE best) flugels in the world. Drawing on that experience, Adams has created a more affordable flugel that will fit just about any musical situation, the Sonic flugelhorn. It’s a ridiculously good horn for the price!

Adams’ motto is “Experience the Sound of Quality”, and this flugelhorn is made in the same factory as the Custom Series flugels. So how have they kept their high manufacturing quality at a lower price point?

Unlike with the Custom Series flugels, where you have to choose between 5 different models, then pick your bell material, bell thickness, and finish, the Sonic flugelhorn comes in one standard configuration.

This standardization streamlines the manufacturing process, resulting in a lower cost for you! 

But, you don't have to take our word for it! Here's a review from Christopher (a retired USAF bandsman) from 3/17/21:

"I’ve just added an Adams Sonic Flugelhorn to my “bag”.  Love this horn, it’s a keeper!  THANKS ACB! First of all “B-Stock”, seriously? I cannot find the blemish unless I look really hard.  If the shop didn’t show me, I wouldn’t have seen it. About me. I’ve scratched out a decent career as a trumpeter and teacher - USAF field bands (25 years) and now teaching & freelancing.
So, I’ve been on a Flugel safari for the entire time. It started with and old Yammy 631 that I loved the sound of, but never trusted the valves (even after work from a big name shop). Fortunately, at the time, I was not playing it often enough to stress. Then I joined the USAF band which kindled my Flugel safari. I won't drop brand names, but have owned and performed on eight or more different brands (big names) and multiple models of each. Not to mention the Flugels of my co-workers. Name it, I’ve played it.
 
My search was for a sound that I love, intonation that is playable throughout my range, and with mechanics that I can trust (valves work, slides fit like they should, aesthetically pleasing).
This Sonic fits all my wants.  A gorgeously warm sound, excellent intonation, smoking valves, solidly built, a great looking ax, AND didn’t break the bank.
 
There aren’t very many horns that I blindly recommend to a trumpeter, beginner to pro.  The Adams Sonic Flugel is on that very short list. You won’t be disappointed with this Flugelhorn.
 
Sadly, my safari is over :)"
 

 

 

The bell is fairly similar to the Adams F1 bell in terms of shape, with a 6” diameter and a .50 gauge thickness. It’s a gold brass bell, which gives you a good balance of warmth and projection. There is some nickel trim that adds a little more focus and density to the sound. The valve block is CNC machined for incredible precision. The fully recessed top caps add that final touch of style!

Try changing between a shallower mouthpiece for extra brilliance and a deep mouthpiece for incredible richness to the sound.

The Sonic takes a large taper flugel mouthpiece (not included). We make three different depths of flugelhorn mouthpieces with any of our ACB rims - our medium-deep MDF is a great match for the Sonic.

Gold lacquer is standard, but silver plate is available on request (great for the British brass band player).
