Grand Prix Flugelhorn

 

 

The flugelhorn, recognized as the sweetest and most mellow of the soprano brass family, has been the beauty and bane of most trumpet players. The sound, when mastered, has unparalleled appeal to audiences worldwide. Yet, it's ability to transmit the inner thoughts of even the finest musicians has been greatly limited by it's highly temperamental attitude - until now!

Previously considered merely a doubler for trumpet players, even the finest flugelhorns have been afterthoughts to horn makers offering only a second class cousin to high quality trumpet designs. Not content to offer an instrument of inferior sound quality to his Callet customers, Jerome Callet in 1992, introduced a significant advancement to flugelhorn design, the Callet Jazz flugelhorn. With it's audibility superior power and improved intonation, the Callet Jazz flug quickly gained a reputation as the finest instrument then available. To this day, it remains a prize in the quivers of artists around the world.

Yet, Jerome recognized that a further update was still needed - a flugelhorn that combined the contemporary power and pitch of the Jazz but with the nimbleness, ease of play, and response of the finest of the classic flug, the pre-WWII French Besson.

Now available, the all-new Callet Grand Prix, a flugelhorn for the world's most discerning artists, a horn to translate inner thoughts to sound - with a golden richness of sound, dead center pitch, unsurpassed power, and response unrivaled in the brass world.
