Perfectly fine. Thank you for asking.
Come on, you don't have to take it personally that I don't like your toys. Really no reason for aggression, it's only about an ugly obesity horn.
Really? This devolved into an argument about whether or not playing flugel can harm one's trumpet playing?
I'll bite. I both agree and disagree with the idea that playing another horn of a different type can have an affect on your trumpet playing. In my experience, every horn has its own center, and likewise, every mouthpiece of a different size gets played by someone in a slightly different way. The body can adapt quite quickly to even small stimuli, so if a person were to make a cold-turkey changeup from trumpet to flugel, and then only play flugel for a few weeks, the trumpet is going to feel a bit different when you come back to it. You may have to readjust to it - a process that might take a few days. But will it "harm" your trumpet playing? It never seemed to harm mine.
Being a trombone player makes your opinion about musical instruments worthless.
I'm the lead trumpet player. I play high and loud because that's all I know how to do.

Some of us know bupkis about flugelhorns. Others of us know bupkis about bupkis. I'm probably in the latter category.
That being said, I like Patrick's reply. Here's my original reply .... "If you're going to be good on the flugelhorn (and play in-tune), you'll need to devote regular practice to it. I don't think this hurts my trumpet playing. But it takes some practice time away from my trumpet."
