I purchased my Cerveny CFH 501 rotary valve trumpet over a year ago. I had Woodwind and Brasswind send me two horns to demo and liked them so much, I bought both horns: one for myself and one for my first trumpet teacher to thank him for all he did for me. I have been playing top of the line rotary valve trumpets from Germany and Austria for many years now and just as many people approach me to compliment me on my flugelhorn playing as they do my playing on my other horns. I love the smooth, dark, rich sound this horn has. People should be aware that it does take a little time to become familiar with rotary valve trumpets if their technique has been built around piston valve trumpets and many of those initial difficulties are reflected in some of the criticisms of the other reviewers. I found that listening to great players who play on rotary valve horns helped me make the transition to rotary valve trumpets faster. Both of the flugelhorns I purchased have a great sound, have been easy to maintain, and are spot on regarding intonation. Overall, I think the Cerveny CFH 501R flugelhorn is a great horn at an unbeatable price.
The Cerveny flugel is a great horn for the price. I found it a little bright sounding for a flugel. I had never played a rotary flugel before, and had trouble with the vibration of the rotary valves on my chops.
I recieved this flugel for Christmas last year, and I was quite impressed. The tone is nice and dark, and the valve action is very smooth. It comes with a good mouthpiece too. The only thing that I found wrong with this horn is that low C# and low D are very sharp, and have to be lipped down.
