RAY FARR Signature
FLUGEL HORNS -
made just for you
Proudly designed and made in UK Imperial inches and thousandth's of an inch . . . .
Valves:- Top 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:- An impressive 7" diameter flair with a Bell Rim. 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:- 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 Shanks:- We supply two different Mouthpiece Shanks. 1) A Large Shank for USA, Japanese & the Denis Wick "L" Flugel Mouthpieces (2FL, 3FL & 4FL) and 2) Medium Shank 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 Signature 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:- Not supplied; best to use your own as you know exactly how it performs.
The world doesn't need yet another range of Mouthpieces!
Serial Number:- The instrument Serial Number 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.
