The all-new Callet Grand Prix is the ultimate flugelhorn for the world's most discerning artists

- lush and golden sound, unrivalled in pitch, immediate response and unparalleled power -

the Callet Gran Prix flugelhorn is the perfect horn to translate inner thoughts to sound

 

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 just a doubler for trumpet players, even the finest flugelhorns were mere afterthoughts in design. Not content to offer an instrument of inferior sound quality to his Callet customers, Jerome Callet, in 1992, introduced a significant advancement in flugelhorn design, the Callet Jazz flug. With its audibility superior power and significantly improved intonation, the Callet Jazz flugelhorn quickly gained a reputation as the finest instrument then available. To this day, it remains a coveted prize in the quivers of artists around the world.

Yet, Jerome recognized that further improvements were needed - a flugelhorn that combined the contemporary power and pitch of the Callet Jazz but with the nimbleness, ease of play, and immediate response of the finest of the classic flugs, the pre-WWII French Besson. All new for 2017, Jerome Callet introduces the Callet Gran Prix flugelhorn, the most advanced flug ever, for the most dedicated flugelhorn artists and trumpet doublers worldwide.
