  • Summary: This horn is a great value, especially for the classical player who will only use it occasionally for brass quintet or brass ensemble. First thing I did was contact Wayne Tanabe at Yamaha Artist Center in New York and had him install a third valve slide. Not an easy job, by what he told me, but the $100 made the horn one that can play in tune. This horn does everything I need it to do, although as an orchestra musician, it rarely leaves the case.
  • Pros: price, sound

  • Summary: This is my first flugelhorn and no doubt it is not as good as the pro model but i think it is a good model for beginners as well as those who are not afford to get an expensive one. I just wonder why there is no ring on the 3rd valve and yet, there is a screw (and hole) there (to increase the weight of the horn? is that thing heavy enough to make any significant difference?
  • Pros: relatively cheap
  • Cons: no ring on the 3rd valve

  • Summary: Of course it sounds good, but not quite like my Couesnon. I think this would be a great horn for Marching Band and Drum/Bugle Corps. because the bore allows you to get some volume, beginner horn's durability, and the price. If you do buy this horn I suggest getting triggers or finger rings added for the 1st and 3rd slides, as stated by the other reviewer. They, mainly the 3rd slide, are always a must no matter what unless you want to do more lipping that needed.
  • Pros: Sound, Price, Durability
  • Cons: No intonation aids, Only recommended for a beginner or Marching Band/D.C.

  • Summary: I was issued one of these for playing lead in a high school jazz band, and I was not particularly impressed with it, although it does seem to be a good horn for the money. My biggest grudge is that Yamaha did not put slide triggers on the first OR third valve slides, which make for terrible intonation that we wasted valuable rehersal time trying to fix.
  • Pros: Consistantly Made, good horn for beginners
  • Cons: Terrible intonation
