Flugel Horn-Valves?

Hi Dan,

Flugel is a good choice for playing jazz, though I doubt you'll find one with rotary valves. If I were you I'd stay well clear of rotary valves for jazz as the valve mechanism is a tad slower than that of the piston valve. They also tend to be a bit temperamental and are a nightmare to fix in comparison to the piston valve.

Good luck with your grade 5!

Angela
