I purchased this horn about 2 years ago and I must say that it had been an absolute blast to play. Tone. Intonation, reliability. All outstanding. The quality of the horn is also fantastic. No random faults like broken welding or missing pieces have happened. For a first flugel horn. You honesty cant go wrong. The mouthpiece that comes with the horn is also pretty good and it's nice of them to include it as well.
