Flugelhorn Auction Sales
The Flugelhorn has been a popular ballad instrument choice of jazz trumpet players for many decades. Because Flugehorns have a wider bore, they provide a softer, more mellow sound than either a trumpet or cornet, though they play in the same Bb key and pitch. This makes the flugelhorn an excellent choice for trumpet players on ballads and soft music. A flugelhorn can be played more softly in a small intimate setting, or just make beautiful sounds in a concert hall. Since the beginning of the jazz era, flugelhorns became very popular with jazz trumpet players, and a necessity for anyone participating in a professional jazz group.
One famous trumpet player who perhaps made the flugelhorn heard by the general public more than any other was, Chuck Mangione. His composition and arrangement of Feels So Good became one of the most played pop-hits of the 1970s.
As my trumpet teacher told me many years ago, not all flugelhorns are created equal. An inexpensive flugelhorn often gets accused of sounding too much like a trumpet. It pays to really learn about the instrument, particularly the history and popularity of used flugelhorns. Just as is the case with trumpets, newer is not always better. The best flugelhorns among all brands were often made in certain eras of the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. I will give you a real-life example. Back in my college days, after I had given up on a career as a musician, I decided I could part with my 1970's Getzen Eterna flugelhorn. I sold it for a mere, $450. I was later told by a professional brass collector that I gave up one of the best Getzen Eterna models ever made! If you see a could deal on a Getzen Eterna Flugelhorn made between 1975-1978, you might want to jump on it.
