    Probably crap. They make horns in LOTS of pretty colors, but it looks just like the rest of the crap that they say is "pro-quality", yet only costs $149.

    Just walk away...

    It would probably be better to stick with Selman, Cecilio, Schiller, Laval, Tristar, and the like. There's no sense paying the premium for the Wurzburg name.

    OK, seriously: check the buying guides on eBay, which is probably where most of the Wurzburg (and those others) get foisted off on suckers. There's a pretty negative review of the Wurzburg flugelhorn for starters.

    Save your money and get an established brand name instrument. Both Kanstul and Getzen have some very good horns in their lower-priced models, as well as some seriously professional-grade horns.
    Vintage Olds and Reynolds and Selmers, yes sir, yes sir, two gazoos full.

    Aubertins, Bessons, Calicchios, Courtois, Wild Things, Marcinkiewicz, Ogilbee Thumpet, DeNicola Puje, Kanstuls, etc.

    Obviosly another chinese made trumpet.There was a thread on the site earlier that had a link to an ebay guide of the wurzbach flugel, they just hated it, the valves, the sound, intonation, probably means it's not that good.
