Excellent sounding Flugel!!!!! SN# 78852 With Recent Chem Clean 3rd Trigger
"N" stamped in the 2nd valve
The SILVER plate on this horn looks real good (99.99%). The marching lyre was remove to make the horn lighter and the bell to resonate more freely. Valves are excellent. Horn plays GREAT! If you want a dark warm sounding flugel this is the one! Excellent fast valves. Smokey dark flugel sound. This horn is the bomb! No other flugel compares with the sound of Couesnon Flugel!. All valves & slides are excellent, tight, they work free & easy, excellent compression. The 3rd Trigger looks to be a Yamaha Trigger but it fits, works, and looks great!. I love these horns!!!!!! This horn was bought new in 1966, I think, it's a very good horn. Sounds excellent for sure. These horns will even play better with a Charlie Melk tuning shank, but still plays great with original Couesnon pipe. I have a few CM pipes avaialble for purchase at a great price.
The serial numbers of the Couesnon Fluges is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. A fire in 1978 destroyed all records of these great horns.Couesnon is one of the great names in brass instruments, in business over 170 years. It grew to include eight factories employing, at one time, over 1800 people in France. In the USA in the 1950s, the Couesnon flugelhorn became very popular as a doubling instrument for jazz trumpet artists. Their flugelhorn sounded great, was readily available, and was cheap. They were everywhere. Its design is copied by the overwhelming majority of instrument makers who now make and market flugelhorns. More Pictures upon request. YouTube ASAP
