I bought this as my first flugelhorn, about 1 year ago.
I have found it's a great horn for learning, and hence i believe that it's
a good instrument for anyone that needs a flugelhorn.
The tone is really amazing for the low price. I have mostly played jazz with it and it really sounds wonderful, especially with a little extra reverb.
The quality is also great. Of course nothing is broken, and the valves run smoothly. In the beginning the first valve had a tendency to stay down even after oiling them, but when I started to play more often and when playing regularly, there are no problems.
I've heard that intonation is a problem on many horns, but I haven't noticed anything like that. And of course the intonation valve solves most things for the perfectionists.
Overall it's a wonderful horn, a great instrument case, and one mouthpiece.
I also got a K&M stand, which fits without problem in the horn, in the case.
I recommend this horn for any beginner, and for any advanced trumpet player who wants to expand a little.
