    Well, if you expect a trombone sound from a flugel, you will be disappointed. But that's bone players all over the world... thinking that their brass garden hoses are the zenith of music... As Richard Strauss once said: "Don't look at the trombonists. It only encourages them."

    I once used my flugel on a recording, doubling the lowest trumpet line to give it a bit more body, kind of in a trombonish way. However, to say that my flugel sounded like a trombone would be insulting to the flugel. ;-)

    Reading is difficult, I see a waste of money spent on unsuccesful education.
    I didn't play the trombone since 1986 or so. But keep on trying, most flugelplayers are only busy with looking to their bellybutton.
