About This Listing

French Besson (Kanstul) Brevete’ Flugelhorn, S.N. 5014 

In the 1980’s Kanstul was commissioned to build these horns for Besson. This is a fabulous playing flugelhorn with great  intonation through out its registers. It has that dark smoky flugelhorn sound with great compression. All slides function as they should. The original lacquer finish is about 95%, and still  looks awesome. There is a slight ding/scratch on the upper side  of the bell behind the first valve. there is a nib missing from the 2nd valve slide and one missing from the mouthpiece receiver as shown in the photos. these are very minor cosmetic imperfections that have no bearing on the mechanical and playing ability of the horn. Comes with a custom leather valve/ bell guard. Also included is a  Curry 5FLD-F (French shank) gold plated mouthpiece in the “BlackJack" (medium weight) blank. The mouthpiece is in excellent condition with a smooth rim and normal wear on the insertion area of the shank. Comes without a case.
