Flugelhorn + Harmon/bubble mute

Does anyone have or can produce an example of a flugelhorn + bubble mute (or harmon / Miles Davis mute with the stem out)?

I'm guessing the combination should sound quite warm.

Very curious how it would sound, but not been able to find examples and don't have access to both

Flugelhorn Intonation

I recently picked up a Chinese clone flugelhorn off of trumpet herald for a really great price. The horn itself seems to be fairly high quality, similar to an ACB doubler or a Dillon. However the horn plays very flat across all ranges. I am using the correct shank mouthpiece, so I know that that isn’t the main problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to correct the intonation?

Best microphone for recording (jazz) trombone and flugelhorn?

Hey everyone. I'm on the market for a microphone to record myself playing trombone (and flugelhorn) in my home studio. I primarily play jazz, and I'd like to record my compositions and arrangements. I'm willing to spend some scratch to make sure I get the best microphone I can possibly afford.

Here are the mics I have been considering:

Coles 4038 (this is the most I would be willing to spend at this point)
AEA R92
Sennheiser MD 421 II
EV RE20

I currently record on a Sennheiser e935, which gets the job done, but leaves a little to be desired. Also, disclaimer, recording myself at home is a relatively new focus in my career, so I still have a lot to learn. What do you guys think? Any mics not on this list you might recommend?

should I get a stagg flugelhorn?

I'm looking into getting a flugelhorn. Unfortunately, I don't have much money at the moment and I won't be able to afford a really nice professional model for a very long time. I've looked on reverb and stagg flugelhorns are a really good price! I just worry about quality. I don't expect a professional level instrument, I just want something that's playable and passable. I plan to primarily use it for arrangements on my youtube channel. Does anyone have experience with the stagg brand? Would it be worth getting this flugelhorn, or would I be better off just not playing songs that would require a flugelhorn until I can afford a better quality instrument?

Flugelhorn/ C trumpets

Hello Everyone

I’ve been thinking about my future with trumpet and the next horn that I would enjoy getting.

Just looking for some good recommendations for a C trumpets and Flugelhorns.

The flugelhorn would be used for what ever comes up (mostly jazz band cause my school’s flugels suckk and general playing)

The C would be used in place of my Bb when ever I’m playing in band or an orchestra. Also it be neat to be able to transpose parts to the C trumpet

Help with flugelhorn notes

Hey y'all, I recently borrowed a flugelhorn from my school for break because I've been wanting to learn to play the trumpet for a while (there were no school-owned trumpets available). It plays very well, and I can hit most of the notes pretty easily. However, the notes I play don't match up with their proper fingerings. For instance, when I play an open C, the note comes out as a D. And when I play the 1st valve fingering for D, it plays a C (I used a tuner to check the pitches to make sure I wasn't tripping because the notes sounded off). This applies to the alternate fingerings as well. Most of the notes I try to play have this problem as well, where they don't sound as they're supposed to based on the proper fingerings. Open G and open E and a few other notes work fine, though. All of the valves are in their correct spots, and the horn is clean. Any ideas on what could be the problem? Thanks in advance!

Warmup on flugelhorn?

If you guys know you will be working on flugelhorn for a majority of your practice, do you warm up on it? I’ve tried this before and I’m not sure if it helps or hurts. On the one hand, I am able to get more familiar with the instrument and have better flexibility and response, but on the other, it might start affecting how my normal trumpet warmups feel. Also, at a gig I will probably primarily be playing trumpet and just have to switch to flugelhorn, so it almost makes sense to practice warming up on trumpet and then switch to flugelhorn to get used to that transition. I feel like for a flugelhorn only player (only Chuck Mangione comes to mind) it might make sense to warm up on flugelhorn, but not so much anybody else. I’d be interested to any of your opinions/experiences with this. Also, now I’m curious: do you guys know of any other flugelhorn only or primary players?

[QUESTION] Opportunities to use a flugelhorn in a big band

About a year ago, I bought myself a flugel to provide a little variety from my trumpet, and while it's been lots of fun practising on it and discovering both classical and jazz solo/combo repertoire for it, I'd like to start gigging it a little more. I'm in a few jazz bands, but I'm mainly interested in using the flugel in one specific band that gigs a couple of times a month and has very long and varied sets.

I play 1st in said band, but I tend to take all the solos as the other players aren't particularly confident. We do a couple of ballads (which tends to be the main use of the flugel), but they're not the types of tunes that lend themselves to extended improv. I'm thinking that it might not be able to cut through the mix in the louder funk tunes, but I could be wrong.

Has anyone had any experience playing flugel in a variety of different styles in big bands? I will experiment a little more in upcoming rehearsals, but I'd like to hear some other perspectives. Where do you think t

4th trumpets playing on flugelhorn?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFYBVGdB7MU

Adam Neely's review of Whiplash. At 22:48, he mentions how each chair's role in a jazz band is specialized. He uses the trumpet section as an example, saying the lead specializes in high notes, 2nd chair does solos, and 4th might double on flugelhorn. Now, do 4th trumpets ever actually play flugel outside of soloing or the entire section switching to flugel? I've done some googling and couldn't find any instances of this happening. I guess it makes sense in certain cases because of the instrument's darker tone, and sometimes the 4th trumpet plays alone along with the trombones or saxes, so the change in colour can help blending with other instruments. The wider sound could also help provide the low end to the trumpet section, like the bari or bass trombone. On the other hand, I feel like it would be more beneficial for the 4th chair to stick to trumpet to fit the timbre of their own section. I

Getting a flugelhorn. Have questions about mutes.

I've seen a really quiet one for trumpets and I'm wondering if that would fit in a flugelhorn or if I need one specifically for flugelhorn. It was a tom crown practice mute. I really need a practice mute that you can use in the middle of the night and not wake anyone.

So does this trumpet one fit in a flugelhorn? If not, which mute do you recommend?

Christmas Arrangements for Trumpet/Flugelhorn and Organ

I really hope that this does not run afoul of rule 1, but here we go.

For the past 7 years, I have been paying a regular Christmas gig at my local Catholic Church. Every other year I am part of a brass quintet, and every other year I am a solo trumpet and the church brings in a string quartet. Two Masses/gigs: midnight Mass and morning Mass on Christmas day.

For the brass quintet years, I have made and found arrangements that carry the group and are always well received. This year is a solo year and the organist wants to feature me for a couple pieces during the prelude. I am grateful to bring music to the congregation, but realize I do not have any arrangements for organ and trumpet.

I do not want to run afoul of copyright, but do ya'll have good recommendations for Christmas arrangements for organ and trumpet/flugal? What are the "go-to" arrangements for Christmas?

Many thanks in advance, and happy toot tooting for those of you also gearing up for holiday gigs.

After many years playing my Bach 3C Megatone Trumpet and Flugelhorn mouthpieces I decided to make the switch to a GR Trumpet and Flugelhorn mouthpiece. Trying the 66M and the 3M. I like them both but the 66M is winning the test so far.

I want a flugel. More or less for fun and perhaps some gigs. I have considered ACB for $600 Yamaha 631 for $1900 and Adams F1 for $2800. I own a yamaha xeno trumpet and an Adams a4 trumpet. I love them both. Which would you pick?

Flugelhorn tuning slide stuck

Due to my neglect of the intrument over the years, the tuning slide that the mouth piece sits in is now stuck in position in the horn. I don't currently have the cash to get someone else to do it, are there any ways you guys can think of to help me get it out?

Edit: Ive tried hot water over the slide in the hopes that would make it easier to budge but Ive made no progress.

Trumpet/Flugelhorn Case

Hey everyone,

Looked online and thought I would also ask here for recommendations on a trumpet and flugelhorn case.

Not looking to spend a ton. I already have a Torpedo Outlaw single and it is awesome. Was a gift so hooray free money.

I have a Yamaha 731 flugelhorn so a smaller wrap and a standard Bb. Do mostly big band and jazz stuff and sick and tired of carrying two cases... I also carry a Protec 6 sectioned mute bag which is great.

I am unsure about gig bags. Have always had harder cases but looking to be convinced. I am tempted by:

Protec Vax model Reunion Blues Continental/Voyager gig bag (one with the harder material exterior)

I searched the subreddit a good bit too and tried to get ideas - just want to get some input before I go buy something.

Thanks!

Flugelhorn valves

I have a few questions involving the flugelhorn I just got. It is a Yamaha YFH 8310 (the Bobby Shew flugelhorn). I noticed that there weren’t any felts on the valve caps, instead there were felts on the inside of the buttons. Is this normal and should I get felts for the valve caps?

Warming up tone on the flugelhorn?

Does anyone here have any advice or exercises for warming up my tone while playing flugelhorn? My tone is alright low-mid range, but around G on top of the staff and above is where my tone is getting shallow and almost sounds like I'm just squeaking when I get to a high C. From what I understand this isn't typical flugelhorn range where I play, but I am preparing for an audition and they have flugels going to high C a couple of times and my tone gets pretty shaky and thins out at and above G on the top of the staff. Any advice or tips would be really appreciated.

Is there a trumpet version of the Yamaha 11F4 flugelhorn mouthpiece or one that is shaped very similar?

I’m borrowing the school flugelhorn for a jazz project and this is by far the most comfortable mouthpiece tone and range wise I have ever played on. I tried putting it in my trumpet, and it works and sounds really good, the shank is just too small for it to stay in. I’m wondering if there’s any way they make these for trumpet or if there’s a trumpet mouthpiece that’s identical or very similar. Thanks!

Cheap flugelhorn question

Hey guys, I'm a junior in HS and have been playing the trumpet for about 8 years. I've been in our musical's pit band since I was a freshman. Every year it's called for a flugelhorn and I've used our school's horn, but now that isn't an option (music department mold issue over the summer). I stumbled across this listing on Amazon for a really cheap flugelhorn. Does anybody have experience with it? Is it actually brass? The reviews seem pretty good for a $100 horn.

Personal Flugelhorn?

I’m sure this question has been asked numerous times on this subreddit, but where is the best place to buy a personal flugelhorn? There’s obviously new ones on amazon, Yamaha, etc. and also used horns are quite common.

As far as best for a lower price goes, what’s the best option(s)? I don’t have a price range but obviously less for decent quality is preferable.

Using a flugelhorn mouthpiece on trumpet

I've made a temporary modification to a borrowed Yamaha 11F4 mouthpiece for the shank to properly fit in a trumpet. I prefer the sound I've been making with this mouthpiece and it feels a lot better to play on as well. Im wondering if there are any downsides or long term drawbacks to this before i purchase one for myself. Thanks.

Flugelhorn

Do any of you have any advice on getting used to flugel? I know it functions the same as trumpet, but the valves are way higher up and my embouchure feels slightly different. Also, I'm not sure if I'm even holding it right, lol. Is it just going to take time to get used to or is there something I can actually do to make the process faster? All advice is appreciated.

Does this book exist? I'm an old fellow learning the flugelhorn. I could benifit from a book of scales with diagrams for finger placement and note names. I cannot tell what Amazon has because none that I saw showed a page from the inside. Any suggestions?

Thank you for your responses. I'm sure you mean well. I do know that trumpets, cornets, and flugelhorns are the same length differing on where the tapering starts. That's why I didn't ask that. My music stand doesn't hold both a book and a fingerings chart at the same time so I keep shuffling them. If a chart had all three (with the name of the Note) then I could focus through my bifocals at just one page. I could make it myself but any mistakes would remain in my practice. Pictures that Google shows don't combine them.

Yamaha Flugelhorn differences

I was curious if anyone could clear up what the differences are between a 631G and 731 Yamaha Flugelhorn? Talked to two different Yamaha reps (and get different answers online) over the last few months and I get different info...

Are they essentially the same exact horn? Just the 731 is silver plated with yellow brass bell?

The serial number on the 731 I am looking at is 003127A. It plays much better than the 631G in the same store.

Thanks!
