The F3 is the darkest flugelhorn Adams builds, with a velvety, rich sound aided by a heavier valve block, large bell diameter and wide bell throat.

The branch is wrapped slightly tighter, and there’s no brace between branch and bell, ensuring more resonance.

It is not intended as a soloist’s instrument, but has been developed with the section player in mind. The result is a flugelhorn that blends extremely well.

Manufacturer’s website:

* The Amado water key was patented in the US by its inventor Raymond Amado at the beginning of the 1970s. A small transverse-mounted cylinder encloses a spring-loaded push-button piston which when depressed lets moisture drain from the instrument. Its design causes less distortion to the air column than the drain port of a traditional water key.
