Playing Above High G

By

Comments about Antoine Courtois Paris AC156R Professionel Series Bb Flugelhorn:

To the gentleman who has problems trying to get his flugel horn above High G ... I suggest using your trumpet for that kind of playing .... even soloing. Flugel is a mellow instrument and sounds out of character playing notes higher than even an Eb above the staff. So I resorted to taking the advise of a well respected musician and clinician..... Clark Terry!! Who heard me play and once told me the same thing! Just wanted to share that with you .... Good Luck!

Flugel is a mellow instrument and sounds out of character playing notes higher than even an Eb above the staff. So I resorted to taking the advise of a well respected musician and clinician..... Clark Terry!! I have a Courtoise Evo III trumpet and love the response I get in the altissimo register. I am in the market for a flugel horn and considering the Courtoise flugel horn ... but can't imagine using it in that style of playing. I say that because Clak heard me play and once told me the same thing! Just wanted to share that with you .... Good Luck!

Beautiful horn....but

By 

from Pa.

Comments about Antoine Courtois Paris AC156R Professionel Series Bb Flugelhorn:

This is a beautiful flugelhorn with great intonation, but the valves are a little slow at first and I'm still having problems with the first valve being sluggish and sticking at times despite numerous cleanings. All of the valves are interchangeable but would probably do best kept in their same valve casing each time after cleaning. This horn seems to gather a lot of moisture with only one water key which is somewhat of a drawback. But, I love the sound and the dark timbre. I would recommend this horn to others only if they were aware of the few slight drawbacks which I hope will rectify themselves in time. There is also a little problem getting into the upper register above high G. A fair buy for the money.
