F4 Flugelhorn

The Adams F4 flugelhorn is standard equipped with a 4th valve and is very suitable for classical horn concerts. This instrument is perfect for playing really low and has a 'thick' and warm sound in the full register.

The F4 Flugelhorn has a 6 inch (160 mm) diameter Red Brass bell with nickel silver flare. It comes with a 10.5 ML bore offering the player a virtuosic instrument with good core strength. The 4th valve has a 11.5 mm bore and lowers the pitch by a 4th. These horns are surprisingly light given the 4-valve setup.
