Flugel Horn-Valves?

This message was contributed by Dan on 11/5/08.

Hi,

Im soon approching my Grade 5 in Jazz trumpet and i would like to experiment with other instruments.
I was wondering if a Flugel Horn would be a way to go seems as though it plays like a trumpet.
I love the look of Rotary valves and wondered if it was better than traditional Piston valves and wether it is suitable for a Flugel?
Does it need more maintanance than traditional valves?

Kind regards,
Dan.
