A beautiful new flugelhorn from Blessing, exclusive to The Woodwind and Brasswind, the BFH-1549TRB is based on the BFH-1541. The BFH-1541 made its debut at the International Trumpet Guild conference in May 2011 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Throughout the show top trumpet professionals consistently commented that the BFH-1541T is œridiculously good." This model performs far beyond its price point. The BFH-1549TRB has a round pinky ring (instead of a hook) and has a bead blast finish with bright accents. It is a visually arresting horn, one that will delight for years.
Jazz greats such as Red Rodney played Blessing flugelhorns and this new model recaptures some of the character of the old Blessing instruments while also incorporating significant improvements. The BFH-1541 features a newly designed valve cluster profile, which is sleeker and more professional than any previous Blessing flugelhorn design. Renowned trumpet maker Cliff Blackburn was integral to the acoustical redesign of the Blessing BFH-1541 and his modifications to the first branch have made this the most in-tune flugelhorn available today.
