SUPERIOR IN SOUND
Proudly designed and made in UK Imperial inches and thousandth's of an inch . . . .

Bore:- The diameter through the Valves is 0.429”.
Bell:- Your choice of a 6" or 7" diameter Bell with a Rim. Our unique Copper/Zinc Alloy and Conical Bell Flair made on our own Mandrels are acoustically inexorably linked to the Ray Farr Flugel’s exacting intonation in all registers and its much-acclaimed sound projection. Zoe ex-Black Dyke's comments when she reviewed one for The British Bandsman in that "The intonation is the best that I have ever played, which I feel the other leading Flugels haven’t mastered yet” say it all.
Trigger:- An adjustable 3rd Valve Trigger is fitted as standard. Us humans are all built differently of course so we've designed a malleable brass 3rd Valve Trigger that you can move 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 Jarno Taper 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.

The Gigbag is the correct size for cabin baggage on all airlines and can be taken on-board.
For our 6" Bell Traditional Flugel we include a very protective Case with Wheels and an Extending Handle.
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.
Free Option:- Lyre Box in any position to suit you; if you really really want one.
