The all new 4895 Custom Reserve flugelhorn marks a leap forward in flugelhorn design and construction. Over a year of development resulted in a stunning instrument that performs better than anything else on the market today.
A newly designed, 6 ½” two piece copper bell features a sheet stem, special heat treatments, and semi-square bend. The result is a uniquely rich, true flugelhorn sound.
An all new .420” bore valve cluster features bronze casings that create a slightly warmer sound with faster/cleaner response. The valve casings are mounted using nickel silver braces allowing for more efficient energy transference between valves.
The slides of the 4895 are a departure from anything else in the Getzen lineup. Canted first and third slides allow for more efficient airflow through the horn.
The 4895’s newly designed third slide trigger features a grenadilla wood paddle mated with an all metal linkage system. This creates a very comfortable trigger with a remarkably smooth throw.
The new bracing configuration removes any tension between mounted parts. Smaller brace footprints reduce the size of any “dead zones” on the instrument allowing for improved resonance.
Not only do the top caps, bottom caps, and finger buttons look great, but their weight and material are also an integral part of the playing characteristics and sound profile of the instrument.
A Getzen exclusive Griego CS FL mouthpiece designed specifically for the new flugelhorn is included. Every aspect of the premium mouthpiece was designed to compliment the 4895 in every way.
A revolutionary approach to flugelhorn design. Every 4895 comes with one yellow brass, one gold brass, and one nickel silver mouthpipe. Allowing players to tailor the horn to meet their own specific playing style and situational needs.
A new, Getzen exclusive fiberglass flugelhorn/trumpet combo case is standard with every 4895. Excellent protection in a light weight package that features removable backpack straps and meets most domestic airline carry-on requirements.
Performance wasn’t the only thing considered for the design of the 4895. Player comfort was also key. The bell and first branch are swept further under the valve section to evenly balance the weight of the flugelhorn. The third slide trigger was engineered to fit any sized hand comfortably. Even the valve balusters were designed with a smoother profile to feel more comfortable in the hand.
We are proud to be one of the very first dealers to offer the Getzen Custom Reserve 4895 Flugelhorn. This is Getzen's latest top-of-the-line instrument. The 4895 features a .420" bore and 3 interchangeable leadpipes - yellow brass, gold brass and nickel. This flugel has a truly unique combination of metals: copper bell, bronze valve casings, gold brass knuckles, and yellow brass everywhere else. The combination of metals gives a terrific color to the sound, without being too mellow or too bright. Notably, this flugel responds more like a trumpet. This is truly a unique & high-end flugelhorn!
