This is a great horn for the price. It's not going to be the best flugelhorn you've ever played, but it's a fantastic horn considering it's $399. I don't have to play flugelhorn a lot, so this fit the bill. This is an even horn with a balance point that's consistent in all registers. You don't have to guess where notes are going to be. I've played this horn all the way up from pedal C to a G an octave above the staff. It doesn't get as squirrelly up above high C as most other flugelhorns get. It's got a great sound and isn't tubby. The valves could be a little more smooth, but that's pretty minor and they may be much improved after the break-in period. If you're in the market for a flugelhorn and you don't want to spend a lot of money, this is a great horn!

Is a good horn , smooth sound and rich tone , and ready to play the next gig .
I love the sound of this instrument. The sound is warm and round. With a little practice it can sound like a french horn.
I am still pumped after a week of shedding and playing one gig. This is a quality horn at a great price. Trent Austin was a real pleasure dealing with answering all my questions and the entire experience was the best ever.
