I was at ACB when this horn arrived to the shop. I had the opportunity to A/B this versus some higher priced flugels in the shop, and to me, this was the best. When Trent says it sold after being in the shop for 20 minutes, it may have been more like 15 minutes. I love the blow and velvety sound of this thing, and I can't say enough about the quality of the Brasspire horns (this is my 2nd pro level Brasspire instrument). The scratched raw brass finish that I have is very pretty as well. Valves are great...you won't be disappointed, and at this price point, simply unbeatable value.
Another great horn from Brasspire, this is their top of the line flugelhorn option. Entirely handmade in Japan, these are great playing and consistent horns.
Update 5/5/15: We just received a 933 1B (the most popular model they made) in brushed raw brass. The last one we literally had in the shop 20 minutes before selling so take advantage of us having it in stock (normally they are a 4-6 month wait for custom builds).
