"I've owned several vintage Couesnon flugels and a Kanstul 1525 and the new ACB flugel more than holds its own with the very best pro horns that cost 6X as much. It has that classic Couesnon inspired flugelhorn sound with the playability and intonation of a modern Yamaha." -Ray Callender

Austin Custom Brass "Doubler's" Flugelhorn: Our #1 selling instrument!

Order today or email us to get on the first pre-orders for the next batch

Ever wished you had a flugelhorn, but couldn’t find a great option that fit your budget?

The ACB Doubler’s flugelhorn is a high quality, professional instrument that performs above and beyond its affordable price point. This instrument was initially designed for professional players who needed to double on flugelhorn occasionally. That meant we had to focus on reliability, consistency, and of course a great sound!

But this isn’t just a great flugel for the jazz soloist or commercial musician.

The Doubler’s flugel is being used by everyone from hobbyist comeback players who just want to relax after work to full-time symphony players who only need a flugel a couple times per year. You’ll find the Doubler’s flugelhorn in British-style brass bands, big band sections, pit orchestras, church groups, and brass quintets.

You might not need a $3,000 flugelhorn, but that shouldn’t keep you from having a great playing, great sounding horn. The Doubler’s is the best value flugelhorn you can find! You will not find another inexpensive flugel with as many optimizations.

Join the thousands of players across the world who are already enjoying their ACB Doubler’s flugelhorns!

Here's a review from one of our customers (scroll down for more):

"Trent and the ACB Squad have done it again..... a 3 run Homer in the bottom of the 9th! I’ve been an ACB client since the beginning and this is my second Doubler. I can’t say enough good stuff about this horn! It has a smooth, even tone over the whole horn. Intonation is pretty good and it blends and cuts enough in a section to get over the band and It’s very comfortable going between this and my Bb. You won’t find a better horn for the price point.  Bravissimo ACB!!" - Mark Russo (3/28/19)

The ACB Doubler’s line is made by a great factory that we work with in China. The Doubler’s instruments are built to our specifications, then optimized here at our Kansas City shop before we ship them to you. The Doubler’s flugelhorn is designed to make it easy to switch between flugel and your trumpet or cornet.

We went with a 6-inch diameter bell that’s almost 100% copper and a classic .413-inch bore. The result is a flugel with great slotting and intonation, and a sound our customers describe as fat, mellow, smoky, smooth, and warm.

We align the valves on every Doubler’s flugel prior to shipment with durable synthetic pads. We also do a full ultrasonic cleaning, adjust the springs, and perform several other optimizations. Finally, each horn is playested to make sure that when you open the box, your new flugel is ready to go.

    Awesome Flugel Awesome Service!

    Posted by Chris on 2nd Oct 2020

    Just want to say I have had this ACB Doublers Flugelhorn for about a week now (Silver Plate) and I absolutely love it and have had some crazy fun playing with it. My wife has commented on how pretty the sound is, she prefers the tone to my trumpet. The instrument is just awesome, all the reviews out there talking about how great of a horn out there it is are absolutely right. Super pleased about going ahead with the purchase. In addition I was so impressed with the overall experience purchasing from the shop, ACB staff was awesome and the whole experience was just awesome! These guys are now my go to brass shop!

    Nice and mellow

    Posted by Kenny on 18th Aug 2020

    This is my first flugelhorn. I've played trumpet for 50 years and never owned a flugel although I've often thought about one. For the price I've found this to be an outstanding horn. You're getting a lot of flugel while being frugal.

    Exceptional Customer Service

    Posted by Ben Littler on 8th Aug 2020

    As I am yet to receive the item I can't give a review of the flugelhorn. What I can review is the customer service, which has been excellent. The people here clearly take great pride in their work and the attention to detail is remarkable. Even sending a short video to show the sound quality was amazing, the flugel sounded fantastic and I cannot wait to play it. Would certainly return for any other brass items I require in the future.

    As advertised!

    Posted by Joe D on 24th Jul 2020

    The ACB description for the 2020 doubler flugel is spot on, a fun to play horn with a great classic flugel sound for the occasional user. It's missing the extra 10-20% of refined perfection of a true pro horn, but that's not what it's all about. The Doubler arrives out of the box wonderfully set up and ready to play, the extra attention in valve and slide alignment, as well as the tweaks to the leadpipe make this horn head and shoulders above any other import horn. Similar looking flugels may be cheaper and come with white gloves, but the individual work ACB gives these guys make it all worthwhile.

    Love the ACB Doubler's Flugelhorn

    Posted by RLopez on 24th Jul 2020

    Purchased for my son and he LOVES it. He ordered the satin finish and it looks beautiful. The sound this flugelhorn produces far exceeds expectations for the price point according to his teacher.

    Posted by Thomas on 21st Jul 2020

    Just wow. I’ve only had this horn for maybe 3 hours and am just amazed at how this horn sounds. The sound is incredible, everything feels nice and smooth, and these horns just look beautiful. Really great job ACB!! I’m a happy camper :)

    ACB Doubler Flugelhorn

    Posted by Frank on 13th Feb 2020

    Beautiful horn with great colours and depth! Great blow, solid valves, fantastic response, and pretty solid intonation. Slides move great for adjusting pitchy spots, as do alternate fingerings. It reminds me a lot of a Yamaha flugelhorn I used to play, but for a much smaller price tag. Really can't get over the colours and ring this horn gets... The satin finish is beautiful as well. Thank you again, ACB!
