Schilke are renowned for the quality of their instruments, and this is no different. The valves are silky smooth right out of the box, and only get better as they break in. Usefully, Schilke ship the 1040FL with two tuning pipes, one for each of the common tapers used on flugelhorn mouthpieces; for those players who already have a flugelhorn mouthpiece they're happy with, this avoids the need for a 'mouthpiece safari', or going to the hassle and expense of getting a copy of the existing mouthpiece made with a different shank.
The 1040FL is extremely comfortable to hold, and the trigger is ergonomically placed to allow for easy fine tuning of the low C# and D.

Rating of the Schilke Bb Fl gelhorn
You get a lot for the investment! Great sound, whether in the basement or in the eternal snow. Schilke's usual light response, incredibly good intonation and a fantastic running trigger round off the complete package. Also the machine runs typically lightly and without great effort. Simply a successful tool, with fair price / performance ratio. Unfortunately, without the case and without mouthpiece delivered (with 2 mouthpipes, German / American), but there we are anyway Individualisten, from therefore to sorrow. Therefore: Grandios! Well done, Schilke!
