Pros: Great responce, great for marching band/student
Cons: Has a pretty bright sound compared to other flugels

I used this horn in my high school marching band this year (its a school horn, 2 years old) and it really worked well for me. It was my first flugel and it sounded great. Highly recommended for a student's first flugel, but advanced players may want to invest in another.

Pros: Sounds like a flugel should
Cons: No trigger

I got an older ('70s) Getzen Eterna Flugel on ebay, and I couldn't be happier.

Flugels basically split into the two categories of the light, fluffy mellow flugel (Couesnon)

or the dark, warm, but still mellow flugels (Kanstul copper bell)

This is in the style of the Couesnon, and it sounds beautiful. They're a great deal too.

Pros: Quality, Warranty, Response of Horn
Cons: limited availability

I shopped for months looking for the right Flugelhorn and I came back to Getzen due to the quality of their horns and the fact that I currently play a Getzen trumpet (so I'm a big believer in the value of their instruments). There are so many great Fluegelhorn brands and choices, but I really recommend you play the horn before searching Ebay or Internet "bargains"... here's why:
The 795 Eterna II has some great features that didn't mean anything to me until I played it and experienced the difference. The valves are typical Getzen - first class slotting with a lifetime warranty. The gold brass bell created a nice warm tone I didn't expect and the instrument was VERY free blowing. It was also lighter then I expected! As a result, within 5 minutes I had a good feel for the horn and was able to play both higher and lower notes (with good intonation)then on my professional grade trumpet (3050)! The tone isn't a traditional mellow-stuffy sound (I don't mean "stuffy" in a negative sense, it's just a traditional flugel characteristic), but very dark and equally appealing. The silver finish is nice and it isn't an overly "bright" tone as I've seen some people describe, it's just not as deep as a copper horn. The silver (only finish option) is very responsive and I personally like the way the horn resonates, sounds and the added bonus that silver wears better then lacquer. It does not come stock with a 3d valve trigger, so if you want this feature it will have to be added.
The Eterna II is a great flugelhorn (I think professional quality), so if you can find a store carrying it I recommend you give it a fair look!

Pros: Extremely free blowing, great valves, projects well
Cons: low register intonation requires effort

I've tried a lot of Flugelhorns and owned this one for about 6 months. It is the most free blowing of any instrument I own, which makes it easy and enjoyable to play. The mechanical quality and valves are just superb. My only complaint is the low register intonation (C especially) is noticeably flat, but I was able to correct by by pulling the lead pipe out (far), third valve slide about 1/2" and using a deep cup mouthpiece... recommend Curry for the sweetest sound. The sound is very nice, not significantly different then my Couesnon, but a more focused projection--it just isn't as forgiving in the intonation category or as small and compact. The large bell projects well and the horn resonates very nicely when played. I'd recommend it above many others in this price range, but if you want pro class Flugel sound, top mechanics and intonation then consider spending $400-$700 more for a Kanstul, Zues or Yamaha Z. BUT, stick with the Curry Mouthpiece, esp. the 600 series rim (smooth sound, no sharpness to the notes or odd harmonics)!
