This beautiful STERLING
SFH-300 blue flugelhorn is the perfect choice for a student,
or for any trumpet player wanting to try something different.
This horn is brand new and has never been played.
Like cornets and trumpets, flugelhorns play in
the key of Bb. This instrument is slightly mellower than the
cornet and produces a 'fatter' sound. The flugelhorn evolved
from the bugle by adding valves. It is often used in concert
bands and in some jazz bands.
Like cornets, the flugelhorn has a conical bore
(trumpets have cylindrical) which means the tubing starts
narrow at the mouthpiece and gets wider towards the bell. It
is however a wider bore than the cornet. It is this bore that
makes the flugelhorn more agile when playing fast passages
and gives the instrument a warmer, more mellow tone.
The Sterling brand is far superior to most instruments
found on eBay, equivalent to the Jupiter brand, but, at around
half the price. Each instrument is play tested and quality checked
before shipping ensuring you only get the best.
High quality components are used throughout its construction.
It plays with a warm, mellow tone and accurate intonation.
Finished in purple lacquer, this instrument is easy to care
Complete with a moulded soft-style, durable and protective carry case and a mouthpiece (note that although the photos show two mouthpieces this horn ships with one) , this unique flugelhorn is
a great instrument. Great for traveling, the student, or
just as something different, this flugelhorn is a fantastic
