Pros: Famous Getzen Valves
Cons: Some intonation problems; you'll be using the triggers,

 
With a bore of .460 it will take a lot of breath control to keep this honey in line. The mouthpiece used makes a lot of difference in its tone. The more shallow the easier it is is to play, but the less it sounds like a flugelhorn and more like a trumpet. Given a Typical 3 or 5 FL mouthpiece it has a wonderful - honey like- fluegelally sound. This FL-H will accept most standard mouthpieces. As with all Getzen horns the valves are always smooth and never sluggish. I purchased a set of Curry heavy caps and a french horn bell cover to protect the silver. This silver tends to react strongly (tarnish) with rubber or hands; but it does not scratch easily at all. -- Mark
