This is the current production Monopole from PGM Cousenon. This horn was arrived in February '03. A total upgrade from the vintage horns, though it is still made on the old mandrels, so have no fear. A wonderful player in the classic French style, it is the only flugel made with a one-piece bell - that is, there's no ferrule between the 3rd valve and the bell rim.
A light and well balanced horn, this has the optional copper plate over yellow brass. The workmanship, fit and finish is as good as any horn currently available. The Chateau-Thierry plant has only 14 people working in it and all horns are hand made. This is my second 142 - the other in standard yellow brass. Bottom sprung, stainless valves and redesigned bracing. Makes a gorgeous sound. Now takes a Back style mp.

Pros: Appearance, tone, intonation,design
Cons: one of the valves was a little sticky

I have had this horn for 4 years. Previously I had a '70s original cuesnon, but not a Monopole.
This horn blows away every other Flugel I've played. I have the silver one. The tuning is precise, the sound is full and mellow, and the valve design is such so that the movement from open to closed is less than on most horns, resulting in ease of fast fingering.
