Here's the difference: The Trumpet is a hard task-mistress, requiring you to get up at 0600 and do drill until you fail. But you can't fail. She'll scream at you (and that's if you're lucky!), she loves her buttons being pushed, and will always leave you wondering if there's a better mistress by mail-order. The Flugelhorn on the other hand is voluptuous, softly spoken, downright dangerous at her best, and will make your ears curl at her worst. She is cack-handed and clumsy, but will make butter melt in your mouth. She's perfect for a lazy Sunday morning affair.
