Couesnon for Elkhart 5V F Alto Flugelhorn Serial #3704

Additional Information: This is a beautiful horn! It is in great shape with almost no dents or dings to speak of. Someone has done some work on this to remove some dents and did a very nice job. It looks like when they re-solderd braces and such to put the horn back together after removing dents they did some spot re-lacquering. All of the tuning slides are easily pulled and have a good bit of pop to them when you pull them out! We used a trumpet mouthpiece to test play the horn (not included). It plays wonderfully up and down with a nice rich mellow tone just like you would expect a flugelhorn to have. This does play in the key of F. From what we can find online this is manufactured by Couesnon for the Elkhart label. Virtually identical to the Couesnon alto flugel used by Maynard Ferguson, and the same instrument that jazz artist and composer Mark Isham has used.
