A flugelhorn's flugelhorn!

Comments about Getzen 3895 Custom Series Bb Flugelhorn:

I've had my lacquer 3895 gold bell flugel for about six years, now. It's sound is more mellow, deep, rich, and sonorous than the silver plate flugels, regardless of brand, which is everyone but me! You can't beat the sound, though I wish the bell had a little more material in it, but I love the 3rd valve trigger and the Amado water keys, but most of all, the smooth, light valve action.

Comments about Getzen 3895 Custom Series Bb Flugelhorn:

I've been playing this horn consistently for four years now, in bands and orchestras with some heavy hitters (professional performers) and I'll take the sound of my lacquer, 6 1/2" gold brass bell over their flashy silver finish smaller bell fluegels any day. You can't match the dark, mellow tone, and the valve action, and the third valve trigger tunes up the lower register.

Comments about Getzen 3895 Custom Series Bb Flugelhorn:

Love it............ Plays and sounds better than most horns that cost much more. This is a three valve horn that I found to be in tune. Mouthpiece not as good. Try out horn with better quality mouthpiece.

Great horn for the money!

Comments about Getzen 3895 Custom Series Bb Flugelhorn:

I've played many flugelhorns over the years, but this one really stands out when you factor in the cost. My favorite is the Calicchio, but those are a grand more. If you're not on a budget, go for the Calicchio, but if money matters - you can't beat this horn.
