Smokey dark flugel sound. This horn is the bomb! No other flugel compares with the sound of Couesnon Flugel! Couesnon Flugelhorn, SN# 68130 On the 2nd Valve It's stamped "N". Bb is stamped on the tuning shank.  All valves & slides are excellent, tight, they work free & easy, excellent compression. It's has some scratches & some small dings, pretty minor stuff. Did you see Made in France stamped upside down?  Trigger is not original but it works perfectly.

I love these horns!!!!!!

The serial numbers of the Couesnon Fluges is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.  A fire in 1978 destroyed all records of these great horns.Couesnon is one of the great names in brass instruments, in business over 170 years. It grew to include eight factories employing, at one time, over 1800 people in France. In the USA in the 1950s, the Couesnon flugelhorn became very popular as a doubling instrument for jazz trumpet artists. Their flugelhorn sounded great, was readily available, and was cheap. They were everywhere. Its design is copied by the overwhelming majority of instrument makers who now make and market flugelhorns.
