I promised to write you about my opinion of the flugelhorn I bought from you:
Let me tell you what I was looking for first.
- A horn that came close to the mellow tone of my ’50’s OLDS.
- Modern valves that the old OLDS just does not have.
So, I wanted Valve action as good as my Kanstul Kustom (KK) and Tone like my OLDS.
At first my tone was not great, but was good on the WT. After a month I am much more satisfied with this horn.
This is the closest horn I have ever played in my 40 years to what I was looking for. The valves are sweet (short stroke) and the tone is so Mellow. My wife is my best critic . She has always agreed with me in that I wanted a horn that played as mellow (sweet) as the OLDS. I think I have finally found this combination and that combination is the WT flugelhorn.
I am a poor musician and could not afford the GOLD horn, but as for the brass finish, BUY IT! I am sold on this horn.
Oh by the way. I sold the KK.
