It is with great sadness that my current financial position requires me to part with the best Flugelhorn I have ever owned, but the bills have to be paid!
This is a 2007 Andy Taylor Phat Boy Flugelhorn, brass with a copper bell. It is the most amazing instrument I have ever played on. Andy made the lead pipe angle up for me as I tend to play pointing down (note in picture). The flugel is in brand-new condition except for three tiny pencil-sized dings on the bell by the little finger ring and one on the third valve slide (my fault for stupidly carrying it in a gig bag where a loose mouthpiece rattled around with the horn in my trunk) which I've tried to capture in the photo. These are SMALL DINGS which can easily be removed by your local brass repairman, and if you choose not to have them repaired immediately, they in no way affect the sound of the instrument.
Valves and slides are perfect. The horn has a third valve trigger. I will include the Andy Taylor gold plated flugelhorn mouthpiece with the horn. There is no size marked on it, but it seems to be the equivalent of a Bach 1 1/2 rim. Sorry, I have no case for this flugel, but I will make sure it is packed securely and insured.
Go to Andy's website at www.taylortrumpets.com and read a couple of independent reviews of this fine instrument. There may even be a sound file that you can listen to, and Andy describes the horn and includes better pictures than I could take.
This flugelhorn is advertised at $4995 on Andy's website today. This is your
