    I have recently (since the areas) moved from principal cornet to flugel horn.

    Now the mouthpiece I have for my cornet I have been told they don't make anymore its a size 4 1/2

    I ideally would like a flugel mouthpiece of similar if not exactly the same size!

    Any suggestion offerings? (apart from the obvious of going to the shop and asking them, I will get round to that am just busy with work at the mo)

    Would be nice to have an idea before I went.

    Hmm, being as your going to a bigger instrument, perhaps you could try an ever so slightly bigger mouthpiece (say, a 4)? Chances are you shouldn't have to do much adjustment to become comfortable and it may benefit your tone in the long run as well.
