Bach has made fine instruments for many years, and they didn't stop with this horn. With great intonation and sound quality, this horn not only plays extremely well, it makes you want to never put it down. Although it is a great horn, sometimes it lacks some of the mellow tone that you look for in more difficult passages. Even with that being said, this flugelhorn is a fantastic horn and is one to definitely try out. This is a real, hands on product review by Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.
