fun to play!
original Monette FLUMPET was inspired by and invented for the
late Art Farmer. Since the prototype was made in 1989, the FLUMPET has
become popular with many leading players as a replacement instrument
for the flugelhorn.
Our second-generation FLUMPET has a sound that is thicker, richer, and
stronger than a flugelhorn. The unusual tapers, 6" bell flare,
double sheperds crook layout, and the Monette constant-pitch-center
design combine to provide a wider range of timbre and dynamics than
any trumpet. With intimate softs and brassy louds, this instrument is
extremely versatile, and also very fun to play!
Having been used in virtually every area of performance, the FLUMPET
can be heard on classical, jazz, and commercial recordings, as well
as on several major motion-picture soundtracks. Please refer to our
