The Kuhnl & Hoyer family have been making trumpets by hand since 1948. Designed in conjunction with famed European brass teacher Malte Burba, the Universal II is a beautifully crafted instrument.
This flugelhorn is no exception to the master craftsmanship of K&H and is an excellent instrument in French style. The goal in the design of this flugelhorn was to once again develop an universal instrument for all purposes, to enable every player to assemble the ideal combination for themselves.
The instrument has been designed to be used with two different lead pipes and two mouthpieces for flugelhorn and trumpet which are included with the instrument. For the soloist, this instrument offers a rich and full sound with a lot of silky warmth. The trumpet player in a wind or brass band who requires an easy response and good endurance will find the trumpet lead pipe and trumpet mouthpiece to be a practical alternative. Intonation and response are excellent and the optionally divisible bottom cap weight system allows an individually adjustable variety of the sound by centering the instrument.
