Classic Blessing design updated for today's players.
The BFH-1541 Flugelhorn is another classic Blessing design with improvements based on the recommendations of Cliff Blackburn. A reduction in the diameter of the first branch has dramatically improved intonation and we upgraded the profile of the valve block for an aesthetically more attractive look. It is an instrument that provides players with the dark, mellow qualities of sound that are expected from a flugelhorn. The additional versatility offered by the optional seamless stress-free, one-piece copper bell creates an instrument that will satisfy the most demanding musicians. Jazz greats such as Red Rodney have played Blessing flugelhorns, and the new model retains some of the character of the old Blessing instruments while also incorporating improvements. As with all Blessing instruments, the BFH-1541 is manufactured at the Blessing factory in Elkhart, Indiana by some of the most experienced and talented brass instrument makers in the world.
