I had a flugel that I didn't need and was talked into selling it to a friend, who as a professional musician did need it. I regretted it as soon as he drove away with it. Few months later I get asked to play in a theatre pit for Les Mis, and there in the first trumpet part Flugel! So I did need one after all. Played the flugel parts on a cornet. That was the spur to buy another flugel, that I still don't need, but want. Love the sound of my Kanstul 1525 and won't make the mistake of selling again.
