    Hey, I play one of those. I think mine is a number 3 bell - I'll check and get back to you.

    Why do you ask?

    All the best. Noel.

    Hey Noel-
    Thanks for the reply......
    I have been reading alot about the LA benge flugels and want to learn more about them......Thinkin' about selling the Couesnon to buy an LA Benge with the 5 bell.

    I've got an L.A. Benge with the #5 bell. I love it. Very nice tone, and intonation is better than most flugels I have played. My horn has a first and a third trigger, so if there are some areas that need pitch adjustment I can use those.

    Good luck.

    What is the bore size of the Benge flugel with the 5 bell? Also, I am assuming that the bell is one piece.........correct? Thanks for all of the posts so far.......... 8)

    I play a LA Benge Pic with a 5 Bell. I added the Blackburn lead pipes which help a lot.
    The horn is a good player.
