Has anyone tried the g4m Flugel? Is it any good?
Flugel Horn by Gear4music at Gear4music.com
I have seen a huge number of Gear4Music instruments (many of my students have turned up with them, regardless of my advice as to which instruments to obtain). I have had 2 (yes, that is TWO) that haven't had to be returned for some reason.
I would personally avoid them.
If you are looking to buy a flugel, save and get something that will be worthy of your playing standard rather than something cheap that will need replacing within a year or two.
What is your (approximate) budget for a flugel?
Check out Prozone and see what they have got - very impressed with their Protégé model.
For the cheap price, they must compromise somewhere?!
I know nothing about Flugels mind (!), but Wessex do one at £400? http://www.wessex-tubas.co.uk/category/brass-2/horn/flugel/
Looking at £500 but could be persuaded with a higher buy if it was considerably better.
