OVERVIEW

Wonderful, mellifluous flugelhorn.

The Allora AAFG-103F Series Bb Flugelhorn offers a rich full sound and great intonation. This AAFG-103F Series features vertical valve slides with a 3rd valve slide trigger and a Rose brass bell for a warm, rich sound. The Allora AAFG-103F Series Bb Flugelhorn includes a case and mouthpiece and is available in lacquer (AAFG-103F) finish. It has a sweet, dark tone and plays beautifully. Flugelhorns in general not being a student instrument at all, this design is aimed at the discriminating player who isn't motivated to invest the two thousand dollars or more that a professional level flugelhorn typically costs.

To merit the Allora name, an instrument must first meet exacting standards for intonation, comfort and mechanical reliability. The end result is an instrument that not only sounds beautiful but can withstand the rigors of those first few band years.

Picked up this horn to do 4-5 tunes a night. For the price it is a great value. Plays in tune, nice sound and valves are fine. Nice round sound. Would recommend to any pro looking to play a few small group tunes or for the occasional big band gig.

As a come back trumpeter after many years of lay off, I bought this on sale after I was very favourably impressed with the AATR-125 trumpet. This horn is a good student horn, but I don't think the valves are of the same quality as the intermediate trumpet. It gets a good tone and good intonation with a Blessing 3FL mouthpiece. The valves are a little sluggish and noisy, 2nd valve is sometimes especially clanky so I fiddle with it to make it a little quieter, but for the sale price, it is acceptable to me to practice occasionally while trumpet is my main instrument.

Comments about Allora AAFG-103F Series Bb Flugelhorn:

I use it for home practice, once in a while for church, Sometimes I use it in Orchestra, Concert Band or Jazz Band. My former trumpet teacher, a professional player, even borrowed it from me a couple of times. The tri-color of the horn won me over, and when I got it home and played it, I was not sorry! I did get a Protec double case to hold the Flugelhorn and my Bach trumpet. If you can afford it, get the Protec with wheels, as It does get a bit heavy lugging two horns in case, but still better than lugging 2 cases.

Comments about Allora AAFG-103F Series Bb Flugelhorn:

Just got back into playing trumpet after many years. I decided to try Flugelhorn as well. This Flugelhorn is a quality instrument. Plays easy and sounds great. The case is not something I would use for gigging but I can always get something more durable. For the price I paid, this Flugelhorn exceeded my expectations.

Very fine horn

By

Comments about Allora AAFG-103F Series Bb Flugelhorn:

I have done two gigs with my new AAFG-103F Series Bb Flugelhorn. I was pleasantly surprised to find the instrument very playable. I had expected to find some problems with it because I have bought lower cost horns twice before and found some notes were out of tune and valve action sloppy or sticky, however I thought I'd take a chance.This flugelhorn far exceeded my expectations. It has a beautiful warm sound, is easy to play and slots right into the note you are playing. I have had many complements on it's great sound. I think for the money it is an excellent buy. I would recommend it all.

Comments about Allora AAFG-103F Series Bb Flugelhorn:

This is my first flugelhorn. Great price. I like the horns valve response, tone, & feel. The case is cheap (wish it had more storage space too) & the horn finish had several blemishes, but for the price I am pleased.

Comments about Allora AAFG-103F Series Bb Flugelhorn:

Used as a doubler, sound is great, minor issue is poor springs, but after replacing them with Yamaha ones, valves feel great, also need to really clean the valve casings. Otherwise no other issue, but some complain about the case being small, I don't use the case anyway so great deal.

I bought this when it was on sale, got free shipping, plus I was offered an online coupon for an additional percentage off the sale price! I thought, hey for the little (relatively) amount of money I'm going to spend on this, it's worth the risk, and if it's really bad I could return it. Well, nobody's going to get me to give this horn up- it plays as nice or nicer than my original Yamaha YFH-631- nicer I suppose because of the 3rd valve slide trigger. The tone is comparable, and I don't know if I got lucky or what, but the intonation is very good as well. The only thing I noticed that was a little weird is the travel distance of the valves seems to be slightly shorter than my trumpets or my old flugelhorn, but it certainly is not bothersome, nor do I expect it to be a problem. Seriously, this horn should retail for at least 3 times the price I paid for it, maybe more....

Comments about Allora AAFG-103F Series Bb Flugelhorn:

The flugelhorn came in great condition. The finish is beautiful and the sound is great. I got a better mouthpiece which opened up its dark rich sound even more. I've been playing and teaching for over 50 years and I'm pleased with the quality of this instrument and for the price you simply can't beat it.

Comments about Allora AAFG-103F Series Bb Flugelhorn:

A good intermediate horn for the occasional user. I perform with a 20-piece swing band and had need for a flugelhorn. Since this was the only time I would need one, I was shopping for an acceptable sound at an affordable price. This horn provided both.
