SOLD Custom hand-built Powell flugelhorn built in 2018 by master craftsman Fred Powell. I am the original owner/professional trumpet player. Moderately used, this instrument has a copper bell and produces a gorgeous warm sound suitable for jazz, big band, and classical music. The exterior is in raw brass, and the interior of the bell is polished lacquer. Everything works perfectly. There is an approximate one-inch hard to see crease and two tiny dings on the interior of the bell. See the last two photos. After consulting Landress Brass, it’s not worth the cost to strip the lacquer etc for possibly fixing these minor issues.
No one-year+ wait time plus new cost of $4,800. I’m moving, thinning my herd, but the main reason is that I can’t play this horn well in the upper register. While flugels aren’t generally played much above the staff, I do a wide variety of gigs and tend to find myself above the staff often. This is a fantastic horn and deserves a good home.
