Sweet sound. but it lacks the butter that the Kanstul adds to the spread.
Nice playing, but the sound isn't flugelhorny enough for me. More like a cornet.
And, of course, all Kanstuls come with a free pair of Baggy Trousers to allow for that middle aged spread.
Perfect! And thanks for the clips, gmonady, that sounds close to the 631G alright. Have you played the 631G yourself by the way?
Thanks so much for the complement at placing me at middle age. If you double my age, no one's come even close to reaching it.
Yes, I have at the Dayton trumpet hang we held a couple years ago. It had a mellow, flugelhorn sound, but not the buttery texturing you get from the Kanstul especially in the low end. Listen closely once again to the low end of the Kanstul clips I sent. The sound really softens and spreads mellow to another layer.
I was being polite, Gary. We English are famous for it.
For what it's worth, I've played my Yamaha 631 since 1975 (S/N 0005XX), and over the years never played another flugel that I liked better...until I played a friend's Kanstul 1525. It's a bigger, but lighter horn, and the sound just blew me away! The 1525 is at the top of my N+1 list.
Another Kanstal flugelhorn convert. Getting the hints here Rapier?
Not bringing this [my age] up would have been the famously polite thing to do.
