Jupiter XO 1646 flugelhorn
WARM, YET FOCUSED TIMBRE
XO professional 1646 flugelhorn features include a traditional yellow brass body available in bright silver-plate or high-gloss clear lacquer finishes. Handcrafted bells are provided in yellow brass for clear quality of tone. Rose brass bells are also offered for those who prefer a slightly darker timbre.
The 1646 flugelhorn is designed around a .413″ bore, a yellow brass body, and a beautifully tapered, handcrafted 6″ bell for a focused yet gentle, warm timbre. The tunable nickel silver leadpipe adds additional mass for centered tone. French tuning slides provide ease of tuning and improved intonation. A custom fitted wooden third valve trigger with mini-ball linkage mechanism offers smooth, positive fine-tuning. A professional two-piece valve casing with nickel silver balusters loaded with precision-lapped Monel valves ensure fast, quiet action. This instrument is available with your choice of yellow brass or rose brass bell to create your desired tonal richness.
A 24K gold trim set is available that includes gold-plated finger buttons as well as gold-plated top and bottom valve caps. A distinctive Tourlite® padded case is standard.
