Pros: Mellow, nice silverplate finish, good intonation, nice balance, solid tone.
Cons: Soft case provided is difficult removing horn. Prefer hard case.

 
Hi,

The Allora flugelhorn belongs to my wife. She plays trumpet and wanted an additional horn. I play trumpet and cornet. We have found the the flugelhorn to be a nice addition to our horn family. I enjoy playing the Allora flugelhorn myself, but I don't play it as often as my wife does.

The Allora flugelhorn is well made and has a beautiful bright silverplated finish. It is easy blowing and has a nice tone. I like the fact that it has a third slide trigger and three water keys. I believe it is a great horn for the price we paid. The valves are smooth. This is the first flugelhorn we have owned and played, so we advise that buyers try several flugelhorns before committing to a purchase. The Allora is well-made, quality instrument. It comes with a heavy mouthpiece - a B & S 5C-FL.

A ProTec (PB-314) Standard Flugelhorn Case comes with the Allora. The instrument fits snuggly in the case, but it is difficult putting the instrument in the case and removing it. We would prefer a hard case for the instrument. The ProTec case undoubtedly is lighter for traveling. It is a quality case and may be preferred by others who like lightweight cases.

The Allora is a fun horn to play and we both enjoy playing it. Its mellow/dark sound blends well with the cornet and is a nice contrast to the trumpets. It is a good value for the price paid.

I am presently evaluating this instrument. Could you please advise whether the valve buttons are pearl or metal, and whether the competitive price is achieved through the use of lesser quality brass (in other than the lead pipe)? Also, do you know the name of the manufacturer? Would appreciate your advice.

I realize this is an older thread, but the question about the valve buttons and the name of the manufacturer has an answer: The valve buttons are pearl and/or a substance resembling it. It has "Made in Germany" underneath the Allora engraving and the company of Vogtländische Musikinstrumentenfabrik GmbH is listed in the packet of information. It also came packaged with a B & S 5C-FL mouthpiece.
