Easy, smooth, in tune
This flugel has been built with Alex Sipiagin in mind: Phosphor Bronze bell, super dark and smooth sound when played soft and in the low register, brightens up when you play high and loud.
It's based on a feature very few flugelhorns have in the world: a conical leadpipe with a proper step inside the receiver, just like trumpets have.
This makes the instrument slot like no other flugel can, harmonics are in the same places as our trumpets': solid, clear and dependable.
This is one EASY flugel to play, no need to mess around with your jaw or lips to bend it to your needs.
Bore size is 11.00mm, valve block is still the MAW kind, so air flows nice and smooth no matter how many pistons are pressed.
There is a new trigger mechanism made of a lot less parts, all CNC machined with our state of the art 5 axis milling machine and multi axis-multi spindle lathe. Lighter, sleeker and super easy to take apart: just pull the nickel rod and you can take the slide out!
New braces between the slides, new braces connecting the various parts and a fancy one piece screw holder for the leadpipe.
Practically the whole flugel is in bronze: rings, finger buttons, caps, stems, braces (which are CNC milled on a lathe and hand bent), even the butterfly screw!
If you are looking for a flugel that you can trust, this is the one to have!
