One of our shop favorites! This 1955 vintage Besson Brevete flugelhorn is everything we look for in a vintage instrument! The sound is dark and lush, response is fast, flexibility is effortless, and intonation is all spot on! This flugelhorn comes to us via a long lineage of NYC Jazz Trumpet/ Flugehorn Legends: Don Hahn who was gifted it from his teacher, Art Farmer! This flugelhorn works best with a french tapered flugelhorn mouthpiece. Used, w/ case.
You can see Don playing this exact flugelhorn on his famous "MacArthur Park" solo with Maynard Ferguson & his Orchestra on the DVD "Live At The Top" (1975):https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBv31QmrMsg
