First date with a flugel horn

williams the skin, 23.01.2015
I should start by pointing out that I am a beginner. Not a complete beginner as I have three professional quality trombones that I have played on and off for 40 years. I just fancied trying a flugel horn as I like its mellow sound. I did not want to spend a fortune, but I also did not want something poor so that I could not progress if I liked it.
The service from Thomann was excellent. They answered my query about the instrument quickly by email, and I ended up buying a B-stock version of this instrument. B-stock simply means returned as new. Mine was perfect. The build quality is excellent. I was able to produce a sound immediately and within 3 days, I am able to play 2 octaves in Bb with a passable sound at times. The valves move freely and the sound quality is rich. The mouthpiece that comes with this instrument is too shallow and bright, so I bought a Denis Wick 3FL one with the money that I saved from buying a B-stock - what a difference. Thank you to a previous reviewer who made this suggestion. It comes with a lightweight case and valve oil and of course white gloves for refereeing snooker matches.
I am very happy with instrument. I think it has the potential to produce a professional quality sound when I get better and I would recommend it to anyone thinking of wanting a good start on this lovely instrument.

Fantastic flugelhorn at a bargain price

12.08.2015
For the price this flugelhorn is fantastic, and easily compares to the Yamaha Maestro (predecessor to the Xeno model) for just a fraction of the price. This particular flugel is modeled after the Maestro (which many recent flugelhorns are).
It is the perfect instrument for the trumpet player wanting a good quality doubler's flugelhorn without breaking the bank, or for lower section brass bands needing a new flugel (at this price it's definitely the instrument of choice for anyone but professional musicians).
The gold brass bell adds a fair bit of weight to the instrument, so if you aren't a fan of heavier instruments then opt for the yellow brass model (FH 600), however the gold brass bell creates that beautiful extra little softness and delicate element to the sound that is just as much at home in a brass band setting as it is in a big band.
The valves have unusually strong springs in, but swapping these for standard-weight springs improves the response of the valves and makes it much easier to play, however some players do prefer the heavier valves. Initially the valves needed a rinse to remove dirt from manufacture, but after cleaning the valves move smoothly and don't stick.
The mouthpiece is suited for use in a flugel, however there are many better mouthpieces out there, and a much better tone can be achieved simply by swapping to a better mouthpiece.
The build quality is good, with no blobs of solder or rough joints, however there were sharp edges on the trigger springs which have caused a few scratches.
For the amazing price you can't possibly go wrong with this instrument, and you won't find it lacking at all. Highly recommend.
