SUPERIOR IN SOUND & INTONATION
Proudly designed and made in UK Imperial inches and thousandth's of an inch . . . .
Valves:- Bottom sprung Monel Valves honed to 0.0002” (two ten-thousandth's of an inch) on diameter.
Bore:- The diameter through the Valves is 0.429”.
Bell:- Your choice of a 6" or 7" diameter Bell. Our unique Copper/Zinc Alloy, Conical Bell Flair are acoustically inexorably linked to the Flugel’s exacting intonation in all registers and its much-acclaimed sound projection. Zoe from Black Dyke's comments "The intonation is the best that I have ever played, which I feel the other leading Flugels haven’t mastered yet”
Trigger:- An adjustable 3rd Valve Trigger is fitted as standard. Us humans are all built differently so we've designed a malleable brass 3rd Valve Trigger so you can move it to the most comfortable playing position for you.
Right-hand Finger Hook on our Signature Models:- Also for added playing comfort, we've designed a Right-hand Finger Hook that is fully adjustable in any direction, radially and laterally. It's unique and applauded by our customers.
Mouthpiece Shank:- Our especially designed Shank suits the larger taper USA, Japanese & the Denis Wick "L" Flugel Mouthpieces (2FL, 3FL & 4FL) and Medium Shank tapers for Denis Wick Flugel Mouthpieces without an "L" (2F, 3F & 4F) enabling you to use any make or type of mouthpiece you like with a Ray Farr Flugel.
Waterkeys:- Main, 1st and 3rd proper Lever Waterkeys fitted as standard.
Protection:- A very protective GEWA Prestige Flugel Gigbag, finished in black Cordura with red trim, strong padded plywood support for the Bell, soft handle, magnetic catch, wide shoulder strap, attached Accessory pocket, adjustable deluxe rucksack straps and a section for Music.
The Gigbag is the correct size for cabin baggage on all airlines and can be taken on-board.
Mouthpiece:- We manufacture and supply the new 2022 Ray Farr "Diamond Model" Flugel Mouthpiece with each instrument.
Serial Number:- The instrument Serial Number/Reference location is know only to us and the customer and is secretly engraved in a non-visible location so it can't be found and removed by a crook if stolen. When making your instrument, we can personalise and engrave a unique Serial Number/Reference of your choice up to 11 digits/letters, as long as it is not currently on another Ray Farr Flugel
