(779-L) Flugelhorn - Lacquered
The 779 extra-large bell contributes to a luscious dark sound and huge sound on demand.
Our bracing design and material, patented, also add to the warm, dark sound. Rich and beautiful, this wood has a wonderful feel.
Cannonball® trumpets feature monel piston valves. Monel is a malleable metal alloy that Insures smooth and long lasting action. The metal re-arranges its shape with every stroke to insure a proper, tight fit and alignment with its casing. Monel resists pitting and corrosion so you won't have to have your valves re-plated. The metal also retains the valve oil longer than other leading materials.
Two leadpipes are included: French-taper and Standard. The French Taper pipe give more an "Old School" feel, while the Standard pipe is slightly more open.
Extra-large bell for a luscious dark sound and huge sound on demand.
The smaller bore size harkens back to the French classics in terms of sound and response, while providing superior intonation
Each Cannonball® Flugelhorn bell is meticulously hand-smoothed and evened for unparalleled focus and resonance.
Monel alloy pistons are extremely durable and allow for easy valve-strokes and maximum finger-dexterity.
Precision placement of the 3rd slide stopper allows for optimal resonance and natural ergonomics.
Beautiful, cocobolo wood bracing contributes to a warm, dark, soothing tone.
Each flugelhorn comes equipped with two professional mouthpieces (French and Standard), mouthpiece brush, cleaning-snake, valve oil, cleaning cloth, slide grease, and a standard hard-shell case.
Acoustical Customizing is the most important thing that happens to each Cannonball® flugelhorn. This work goes above and beyond expectations. Specially trained and talented acoustical adjusters work on each flugel, adjusting the bore, air flow and more until they are satisfied that each horn has an open feel, effortless slotting, and a focused and resonant tone. When you pick up a Cannonball® flugelhorn, we want you to love it as much as our acoustical technicians love it. We want you to say, “I can’t put this horn down!”
"Throughout my career I rarely have changed equipment or been swayed by the 'newest thing'. Cannonball® Trumpets have changed my mind. They are wonderfully consistent in sound, feel and intonation. I am amazed how great the sound is from the lower register to the high. The intonation and slotting of the high register is superb. I feel comfortable on these horns whether I'm playing lead in a session or in a classical chamber group." ~ Trevor NeumannSEE ALL OF OUR ARTISTS
