From the bell flare it looks like it might be some sort of flugel horn. Can anyone say for definite what it is?

    I don't know much about brass, but seems like it could be a rotary-valve flugelhorn.

  • @Theodore The flare is kinda borderline between flugelhorn and cornet, to my eyes. On the flugelhorn side, looks like the mouth pipe goes right into valve one. Cornet mouth pipes usually go through a tuning slide first and then into valve three. Commented Oct 31, 2023 at 11:03

Based on the proportions of the instrument it can only be a flugelhorn. Morrison has his instruments custom made by Schlagerl. They built a bass trumpet for him in a very similar form (source):
