        Comments about Jupiter 846 Series Bb Flugelhorn:

        Contrary to the website illustrations, the latest versions of this horn apparently come with conventional water valve/keys instead of Amado water keys. A bonus, most would think. Except the first water key on my instrument is brazed at an angle, and the "cork" does not cover the drain hole squarely. As I intend to keep this horn for quite a while, I plan to exchange it ASAP. Hopefully for another 846RL... but MFI seems to have sold out of the latest shipment. We'll see if Jupiter USA can make good!

        BTW, the horn is otherwise quite nice. If you get a good one, I think you'll be pleased!

            I've played many different flugelhorns, however, not one of them had "the sound" like the 846. This flugel made me smile.I can only imagine what the XO 1646 sounds like!!

              Comments about Jupiter 846 Series Bb Flugelhorn:

              I play flugelhorn about 40% of the time on my gigs and previously owned this same horn and foolishly sold it. I have played Couesnon and Blessing flugelhorns in the past and they were very good instruments. After some years I sold them and played trumpet only. I found after some time that I missed the velvety sound of the flugel and that is why I purchased the Jupiter 846RL. There may be other better flugelhorns out there, but they do not justify the extra money you have to pay for them. The price of the Jupiter is 1/3 the price of the competition and in my experience, I have found the Jupiter on a par or exceeding the more expensive competitive models. Great horn, beautiful sound and it is lightweight as a bonus.
