    .MPC slide on flugelhorn

    Hi guys,

    I have a question, what is that slide in front of MPC for?

    I know what is 1st valve slide for and I know what is 3rd valve slide for.

    But I have no idea about MPC slide. Actually I never know it existed untill I was taking MPC oput of flugelhorn and slide vent along

    This is not a slide, this is a mouthpipe or leadpipe (question of terminology). Most flugelhorns don't have a tuning slide as the leadpipe is going directly into the 1st piston valve, so they are tuned by moving that pipe (like on piccolo trumpets). The only flugelhorn with tuning slide like on trumpets that I have seen so far is made by Anton Possegger (Austria)

    Marcinkiewicz flugels also have a tuning slide out front.
