    Re: Flugelhorn, Trumpet, Cornet

    The best flugels I've played are Taylor (standard), Carol Brass, Kanstul 1525, Leblanc F357 and a Courtois. If you're in the college student price range...then the Carol Brass would be the best buy (out of these horns). You can find them ranging from $1100-$1500.

    A lot of people out there say that the Kanstul 1525 is "the one". But that's most people. It really comes down to what you like and what works best for you. So get out there and try a bunch of them!

    Good luck,

    Here's a link to one of Storks Flugel pages.

    I went with the 1 FLS"y" for a bigger/darker/warmer sound. It is much larger @ 17.00mm than my trumpet mpc @ 16.55mm. It took some getting used to but that's what practice is for.

    Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.
