A luthier is someone who builds stringed instruments. Does this seem like a brass expert to you?
If you want a decent cornet tone, you might try a Curry DC or TC series mouthpiece or a suitably deep Bach or Benge (if you can find one) mouthpiece. You mention that your Bach 6 isn't doing the job to your satisfaction, although it should, so I'm a bit stumped here. It sometimes takes a mouthpiece safari to get a good match with your horn; sometimes even that doesn't work. Finding the right combination makes a world of a difference.
As far as playing a flugelhorn, it's quite different in sound and approach than either a trumpet or a cornet. Play a few and see how you like it. Playing a flugelhorn can become habit-forming.
In French the word "luthier" is also used for brass instruments :
But at Eagletone's they aren't French...
A good shop if Lionel wants to find used flugels not so far from where he lives (420 km):
Instruments d'occasion cuivre : Basse, Bugle, Euphonium, Hélicon, Saxhorn, Trombone...
Also in Paris, for instance Feeling Musique, rue de Rome (see my previous post).
And don't forget l'Atelier des Vents in Marseille:
Instruments vents et accessoires, cuivres et bois, vente location rparation atelier Marseille
You can sometimes find a good Couesnon flugel…
I thought Luthier was a 16th century reformer.
OP - are you getting your question answered? I want to go back to your original post and clear up something. Do you want to play flugelhorn or do you want to sound like Chet Baker, because IMO they're not the same?
His first 95 horns made in Wittenberg remained famous.
420 KM isn't far? You must be a giant!
There's also leboncoin.fr. I picked up a rare Courtois piccolo trumpet off there a few months ago.
I see a new advert for a Cousenon flugel has been put up recently:
Magnifique bugle Couesnon Monopole argenté de 1924 Instruments de musique Aude - leboncoin.fr
Why can't the French call it a 'flugelhorn' or something similar, like everyone else? Have to be awkward and different, don't you?
Regarding Chet, some interesting (and not all positive) discussion here: Thoughts on Chet Baker?
You're right. Japanese call it フリューゲルホルン, which is the same. Even Italians say Flicornio..,
and Spanish people say Fliscorno.
From now on I'll say Flicorne, we will be at least two to understand!
