    I occasionally play with a guy who has a Miraphone rotary-valve flugelhorn. It's a short, round thing, seemingly more of a kuhlo-horn wrap. The thing is, he hates it, but is too cheap to replace it.

    I have played and even owned for a time a rotary Bb Miraphone and it was fine. The only reason I let it go was I was able to latch onto a B&S rotary which is much better at least for me.

    I had a Miraphone rotary valved flugel. It played fine...nothing special, but there was nothing especially wrong with it. I had to let mine go because the posture used to hold the rotary screwed with my arthiritis....
