I am usually very careful with superlatives. With our ELEPHANT-FLUGEL, however, these attributes hit the bull’s-eye.
The ELEPHANT-FLUG is the result of years of intensive collaboration between Fritz Lüttke and me. Many of the experiences we gathered during the construction of the ELEPHANT TROMPETE and the ELEPHANT-HORN are part of the creative process of developing the ELEPHANT-FLOW.
The result is more than satisfying for us all, the ELEPHANT-FLU GEL is an all-round perfect instrument.
I am sure that our ELEPHANT-FLUGEL will take its place – especially as a soloist – in all styles of music.
