If a dark mellow sound is what you’re looking for, Getzen has a line of versatile Fluegelhorns that will meet your needs. As with all Getzen piston instruments, all Getzen Fluegelhorns feature the legendary Getzen valve section with nickel plated, nickel silver pistons that combine lightening quick response with outstanding durability.
The Eterna Series 895 and 896 Fluegelhorns feature traditional fluegelhorn configuration of the first and third valve slides. An available trigger option on the 895 model and the standard fourth valve on the 896 model ensures that both offer the player better intonation and easier playability. This makes the Eterna Series Fluegelhorns perfect for any jazz, concert, or brass band.

Pros: Inexpensive used
Cons: intonation

The good news is that the 895 is inexpensive when purchased used; the bad news is that the intonation is not very good and the tone quality is marginal. If you need a flugel for rare playing situations, this one will work OK and not set you back much $$$. A new Jupiter will work fine for the part-time player. For serious playing, go for a Yamaha or better.
