I have put a huge amount of time in on this horn in quintets. While most people jump the conclusion that the Flugelhorn is a jazz instrument, it is used almost as much in quintet repertoire. As the Sonoran Brass Quintet increased its repertoire, it became more apparent that I needed to get a Flugelhorn. I mentioned to my parents this and that I was hoping to pick up something cheep that would get me by. They started asking some questions, and pretty soon they presented me with an early “completion of your doctorate” present! What timing. In my opinion, they are the best on the market.
