This beautiful instrument has a sweet, 'airy' sound - allowing for subtle dynamic variation which is often missing on more expensive instruments.
The Mirage MFG200R Flugelhorn falls into the category of best value for money musical instrument. It could be said that it is widely recommended by teachers across the United Kingdom which is true but it is far from just a beginners instrument as it truly has an incredibly good sound. It is manufactured to an incredibly high specification with some of the best materials available. The lead pipe and bell are manufactured from rose brass, which in turn give the flugelhorn a very warm sound because of the high copper content in the brass. The excellent design and precision construction of the MFG200R flugelhorn gives the player very accurate intonation throughout all registers. The valves are manufactured from monel steel for smooth operation. Most other student cornets only have nickel plated valves which in time will wear, leak and stick but the MFG200R boasts monel steel valves as found in more expensive models.
There are 3 water keys and adjustable 3rd valve slide with finger trigger for refined tuning in lower registers. The case provided is a zero gravity zipped case making it lightweight for carrying to lessons and schools or gigs.
The Mirage MFG200R flugelhorn is undoubtedly the best value, affordable, good quality student to medium range flugelhorn available today.
