Taylor Vulcan Flugelhorn

Proving the point that sharp angles make little difference as to how a brass instrument plays, the small bore Vulcan produces a very dark, rich sound with plenty of depth. The pistons are very smooth and the valves are as quiet as you like. True, there is some resistance when you start to push and it does take some driving in the upper register but the reward is well worth the effort. Made out of a heavier gauge copper than normal, the whole instrument is nickel plated, not just for the looks, but also because nickel is incredibly hard wearing. There are also a couple of nice touches – two opposed water taps to release water more quickly and a very individual ‘Mr Spock’ inspired finger hook. Info: www.taylortrumpets.com

@MusicClerk I can relate. Someone in my local Morley's was saying that Rubicon hits levels above Fanta. Bullshit be crazy.
