    Who plays the jazz you like? What do they play on? I suspect you're heading towards flugelhorn in sound (just guessing), though an awful lot of jazz musicians play trumpet.

    Good flugelhorn brands are probably similar to good trumpets brands, including Bach, Getzen, Kanstul, Schilke, Yamaha, and others. If you're in the Oranges, you're not far from Dillon Music who probably has these and others in stock.

    Clark terry is the 1st jazz flugel player that comes to mind. You should listen to some of his stuff. Guido Basso is another flugel guy. Jupiter 846 is your flugel! :roll: Those are good prices on the above flugels.

    Hmmm, TrumpetMD pretty much nailed it. Personally, I would take Trent's route but you can usually find the Yamaha 631 for about the same price on ebay or craigslist.

    Perhaps try a Curry TF mouthpiece on your Strad -- you may discover a sound you like... I had one once (a TF3) before I gave it away (since I did not use it often enough and another TMer wanted it).

    Here's a write-up: Curry TF Mouthpiece Review I only read this today but it matches my own experience more or less.
