This Triumph Flugelhorn is the same model as the red flugelhorn. It has been restored without the customisation work. Serial number is 20xxx.
It actually has a different feel to the red flugelhorn, and perhaps even a slightly better tone.
Records confirm this instrument was manufactured on 4th February, 1931.
There is a story to this flugelhorn. While the red flugelhorn was in the workshop being restored, this one came in to be sold! What are the chances of having two of the exact same model of an instrument this age in the same workshop at the same time! Naturally a deal was made and the two now share the same double case.
This Triumph Flugelhorn is very different, and may be a copy of a late 1800's Higham Flugelhorn. Serial number is 14xxx.
It was found in very dirty condition, partially disassembled and in the original (but unservicable) leather case. The second valve slide and a bottom valve cap were missing.
This flugel has been cleaned up and a few parts loaned from other instruments. It can play, but the leadpipe is in three pieces, and there are significant air leaks despite the tape used to hold the lead pipe together.
Records indicate this instrument was manufactured in 1916.
