But remember, it would not be a flugelhorn any more, but a puglehorn
Somehow this seems appropriate...:
Better get a pair of Gary's baggys.
I wish that I could! That would be fun!
Ans what about a pocket bass tuba?
I was serious. That sounded kind of "snarky".
I think, with some creativity and open-mindedness a pocket flugelhorn could be an appealing thing. Looking at a pocket cornet critically, there is about as much free space WITHIN the wrap OUTBOARD of the tubing as there is INSIDE the tubing...it would require a different manufacturing technique to construct a small-bore flugelhorn within the same overall volume of a typical pocket cornet, but it COULD be done. And I KNOW there would be others who would also enjoy such a novelty.

Wow! Makes a lot of sense, too. What a lovely little thing!
I guess you could call this a "short scale bass".
--- hey Gordon have you ever taken time to read some of your posts?????? ------ pocket flugelhorn?? --- why would you even think of such a thing?? --- but it's probably a design that doesn't NEED to happen --- the pocket tuba or pocket trumpet is designed to facilitate traveling, and since the flugelhorn is essentially a mellow trumpet ------ the actual need for your chops to practice while traveling can just as easily be had in a pocket trumpet, the design of which is currently on the market -------------------------- no sense in redundancy in the marketplace
It isn't for the same obvious reason as a tuba, nor is it redundant...it is a different animal. People have flugelhorns to play FLUGELHORNS, and sometimes they travel. I happen to love flugelhorns and pocket trumpets and the notion of creating something unique is appealing. At least to me. Everybody's cup of tea? Of course not. But I can imagine one and find it appealing...and not to just use it to keep chops in place while traveling.
