The Adams F5 Flugelhorn is a wondeful combination of a vintage sound concept and advancements in modern technology. The instrument plays very easily because of straight direct-air column ported valve-set, resulting in a so-called 'straight flow'. It allows the leadpipe to continue in a straight line into the bell, assuring less resistance while playing. The valves of the F5 are short-action for easy virtuoso playing, and the instrument has a very compact feel. The F5 comes with a full copper bell which makes the instrument even more lush and rich.

The all-copper bell with a diameter of 160 mm is hammered by the Adams craftsmen from a single sheet and has a wall thickness of 0.50. It is the only brass instrument that Adams makes out of copper. A very soft material, which is also reflected in the sound. The F5 comes standard with a 10.5 mm ML bore.
