Custom Flugelhorn Mouthpiece Solutions
If you are like most trumpet players your flugelhorn is more of an afterthought. It is something you have to lug around to pull out for the ballad — cold, out of tune, and using a mouthpiece that you’re not quite sure goes with the flugel. A custom flugelhorn mouthpiece can help.
One way to help make the flugelhorn easier and more fun to play is by customizing the mouthpiece. A service we often recommend is threading your trumpet rim (or a backup) and putting on your flugel mouthpiece. That way, when you make the quick switch between trumpet and flugel on the bandstand, the mouthpieces feel similar. This takes away a lot of the shock factor of playing flugelhorn.
