(the answer is at the bottom of this page)
David Holloway's instruments:
1. Bb Trumpet: Olds "Super" Model - Serial 277871, which is an
antique ca. 1950's totally reconditioned lacquer collector trumpet.
2. Jupiter 846BL black & gold Flugelhorn
This was the very last black lacquer model to come out of the distribution
factory in Texas. It is no longer produced.
It's computer based engineering takes the best characteristics of the
French Couesnon flugel (pron. "queenon") and the
Yamaha Model YFH 631. This horn sounds responds like a horn really should.
The sound is buttery smooth and mellow.
Is this horn-e... or what?!
.433" (11 mm) medium bore, 6" (152 mm) bell, French design vertical tuning slides, bottom spring, monel pistons, tuneable mouthpipe. In crystal black finish with gold lacquer trim. Mouthpiece = a Bach 7C equivalent from Jupiter. Pictured above are the silver and black-lacquer versions.
