GOOD SELMER - PARIS Bb FLUGELHORN, MADE IN FRANCE IN THE 1970's? The flugel is all original and never seriously damaged. There are a couple tiny dings, no big dents ever. The bell has never been creased.
Original silver plating is worn maybe 10%, mostly just scuffs to the bottom branch (see photos) and some slight bubbling. The valve pistons show little wear and are still fairly tight in the casings. Valve action is fast and quiet and the flugelhorn plays very well. The mouthpiece receiver accepts a French taper mouthpiece. We'll include a properly fitting Courtois French mouthpiece.Wichita Band Instrument Company is a small musical instrument emporium located in the center of the USA. We've been in business since 1953 and have had the same owner since 1963. Originally we were a repair shop that specialized in woodwind and sax restoration. Today we have 18 employees including seven of the finest repair technicians in the country. Virtually ALL the items we sell have been fully reconditioned in our own shop, although we do sell the occasional unrestored historical instruments each year. It's in addition to any factory guarantees. For two full years, we will repair or replace - whichever in our estimation is the more advisable - pads, corks, springs or other parts required, at no charge to the customer. In the event of cracked or damaged wood sections, we will repair at no cost to the customer or replace the section and charge the customer only for our net costs for the replacement section. If your instrument sustains damage to the body, end bow, neck or bell, we'll burnish out the dents and make it look like new again. Wichita Band Instrument Company maintains a repair department capable of restoration work of the highest quality. Even though repairs are essentially free for the first two years, after that period has expired, we remain at your service to maintain and repair your musical equipment forever. It's our'service after the sale' promise and has been since 1953! Anything we sell can be sent to you for a short approval period without obligation. We're happy to correspond with musicians, players, parents and enthusiasts of all types. Written appraisals are always available, but please don't write or telephone and ask what's granny's mellophone worth? Feel free to call for any additional information.
