No it's not broken! This is a rotary valve Flügelhorn Model Killer-Queen built by Schagerl of Austria designed and played by Thomas Gansch. Thomas is one of 6 other virtuoso brass players in the septet known as Mnozil Brass. Their live show is a totally unique blend of serious music and comedy that's hard to describe. Imagine if Buster Keaton and Monty Python teamed up with world class musicians to form a brass ensemble.
