I have an OLD Van Engelen flugelhorn for which I have been searching parts for nearly two years now. It is apparently a pre-1900 model and is missing fingerbuttons, and valve top and bottom caps.
A kind soul on this site suggested I search a local market in Belgium as these occasionally come up there. He was right. A seller has FOUR she is wanting to sell...I tried contacting the seller but since my IP address I foreign I am blocked from contacting the seller. I contacted the admin for the marketplace and said such was their policy and can't be avoided, suggesting however, that I find someone I know in either Belgium or the Netherlands to contact the person for me. I do not know anybody in those countries. Do any of YOUR subscribers know anybody there who would be willing to contact the seller an pass along my contact information so that I could resurrect this beautiful old flugelhorn?
