    Bb Bugel Taylor 'Phat Boy'

    i
    Review by Davie Howes. Not so long ago I was earning a living playing my trumpet in the four corners of the world, but never with Maynard (trumpet joke!) These days I support the family working as a professional arranger, but the trumpet/flugel remains my first love. I was delighted to be asked to try out the latest offering from Taylor Trumpets. My first impression of the 'Phat Boy' on taking it out of the bag was, what a sexy looking horn. Even the wife said 'that's really pretty'. My regular Flugel is a Yamaha, bit old and beat up, so this was going to be an interesting comparison. I used the mouthpiece supplied with it as I guess this was intended to be a match. Custom Phat Boy, Click to Enlarge The Phat Boy lives up to its name, it is a 'Fat' sounding horn. It's almost impossible to get this horn 'not' to sound like a flugel. It refuses to ever sound like a trumpet at any volume. It's a totally different feel from my Yamaha. I found I needed to relax a bit more in the bottom register to get the best from it. This is a radical instrument and as expected it took a while to adjust. Once I got the feel for it though I began warming to it. Copper horns do have a slightly woolly response and the Phat Boy is no exception, but the trade off is a distinct richness in the sound quality. The left hand position is no different from a regular flugel, though I imagine some people might find the right hand position takes a little getting used to. I have long fingers, so to me it was not uncomfortable. I found I had no real problems with the intonation, often a worry with flugel horns. It pays to take the time to get used to any flugel, but I would give this one the thumbs up. I made some test recordings alongside my Yamaha, same piece, same mic, same flat eq settings. From this it was apparent that the Phat Boy likes the microphone. The tone on a flat/dry setting was great 'straight out of the bag'. This saves a lot of time in the recording process and must make the live engineers job so much easier. Taylor Instruments are expensive but they are hand made and of exceptional build quality, great valves and they are certainly good looking horns. Only someone ready to shell out this amount of cash can decide if its really worth the money. If I didn't have to feed the kids I would give it serious consideration. Joking aside, it is a very nice piece of kit. And I did sell my soul to buy a Taylor Chicago Trumpet 3 years ago
