I purchased my Getzen Flugel a few years ago, the owner had passed away and this was up in his attic. A friend of his brought it in to the music store to sell and I was there when it came in. Gave him $500.00 and he was happy as a clam. He had no idea what he was selling. What a find !
Turns out it was made during one of the first runs of Flugels Getzen made. By the looks of the valves and interior condition it was not played much. Too bad, because it is the best playing Flugel I’ve ever had my hands on, and I’ve played a lot of them. Best part is it’s in my gig bag now !! : )
