    I'm not exactly sure what the bore size is. Perhaps it is on the larger size. There is not very much back pressure

    I seriously doubt a vintage French flugelhorn would have anything but a small bore.

    The Selmer K-Modified flugel had the smallest bore I've ever heard of in a flugel -- under 0.400"!

    Most flugels are less than optimum in the upper range. They are not engineered to play there, and that deep mouthpiece messes with a lot of folks. My Getzen is fairly secure, but it has a trumpet-like bore of .460

    That is true. I wouldn't expect to play a screaming double g. I currently play with a Bach 3C

    Is that 3C or 3CFL ?

    Kanstul asked if I was interested in keeping the lyre holder or if they should remove it. I have asked them to keep it on...Does anyone know of a place to get lyres that work with these older horns that have a round lyre holder?
