My new and surprisingly light Adams F1 is so fun to play that it has inspired me to practice more often! The horn offers a great deal of control regarding accuracy and intonation while providing a rich flugel tone. My favorite feature is that the construction (horn shape/valve design and quality) allows for very comfortable, clean and fast fingering. I have never sounded more defined on faster passages. Trent is the man!!

I have played this instrument for 6 months now, and my opinion for it has not changed from the moment I've picked it up. This is a truly outstanding horn that surpasses any flugelhorn I've played before including Courtois, B&S, Kanstul, Yamaha and Bach. Intonation is superb, the instrument is incredibly light and extremely easy to handle even with the large bell. With the nickel flair and the antique finish, it is a true beauty to look at as well. The valves are amazing, with its "short throw", I can play fast passages with ease. This is a horn that lets me play music with great ease. Much thanks to Adams Brass for creating such fine instrument and ACB for the flawless delivery and handling.
My F1 was ordered with a 6" bell that I would recommend for ensemble work. True flugel sound that plays very easily and projects through the fattest of trombone and reed players! Incredible workmanship, fast valves & beautiful finish! Intonation appears to be excellent, but I have limited hours on it at this point. Valve caps come on and off without the trauma I was suffering with my Yam8310z. Try to play some various bell sizes to get the one that fits your intended use. Great service from Trent and the guys.
I own one and this one was bought for a friend after he tried mine. Gold Brass/Nickel bell one .45 one is .50 and both are unbelievable instruments! As far as I'm concerned Adams makes the best flugel out there today!
