Have had the flugelhorn about 4 weeks. Not a lot of gig use yet, as it’s a secondary horn. Workmanship appears very good and solid. No buzzing loose braces. Lots of pro features, especially the 3rd slide trigger. Also appreciate the 3 water keys, which are nice and tight. It’s pretty free blowing with a nice, mellow tone. It’s got a good scale and plays in tune overall. Was not expecting springs in the bottom valve caps for an intermediate horn, but they get the job done. Valves are smooth, but still getting worked in for speed. It’s a little heavier than my Getzen Eterna, but it may just be the added weight of the 3rd slide trigger. So far, I’d recommend this instrument. Excellent price and customer service over the phone.
The most beautiful instrument I have ever played.
This is a beautiful sounding and esthetically appealing looking fluegelhorn. As a French Horn player by nature, this Horn was a perfect transition for me price wise and sound wise.
I purchased this horn because of a very positive review it received on Trent Hamilton's YouTube channel. I am well pleased so far. This is a good quality instrument' especially for the price. I was going to purchase a much more expensive horn, but for my needs your instrument is perfect.
I absolutely LOVE my new Jean Paul flugel and so does my wife. I play all her favorite songs with it and they keep sounding better every day as I get used to the intonation of the horn. It is easy to play but differs slightly from my cornet and trumpet. There is a slight learning curve but nothing too difficult and I am enjoying the difference immensely!
