- Flugelhorn (contralto saxhorn) in Bb by Adolphe Eduard Sax, Paris, France, 1907-1928
Sax's son, Adolphe Edouard (1859-1945), continued to produce his father's contralto saxhorn model almost without alteration. The bell-forward saxhorn in B-flat, represented here, became the model for the development of the flugelhorn as we know it today.
