One-piece copper bell
The Kanstul 1526 Series Bb Flugelhorn is a variation on their Signature model and features four valves, extending the bottom range of the flugel. The one-piece copper bell gives it a dark sound that's full-bodied and rich. Available in clear lacquer or silver finish. Includes case and mouthpiece.
Kanstul has embellished the flugel tonal characteristics through the use of other bell materials such as copper and bronze. By correcting the taper, intonation has been perfected, tone color enhanced, and playing through the registers now requires little or no effort.
