"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 play-tested to make sure that when you open the box, your new flugel is ready to go.

    ACB Doubler Flugelhorn - Satin Finish

    Posted by Stu Shear on 23rd May 2022

    I am breaking in the valves on the Doubler flugelhorn as they are stiff as it is a new horn. I love the tone and the feel of the F Austin Custom Brass mouthpiece that Josh recommended. Hopefully I can play it this summer as I have 6 concerts to play.

    Great horn

    Posted by Amy Paterson on 18th Nov 2021

    Love my Doubler's flugel. Intonation, sound and playability are great, comparable to the much more expensive Yamaha I used before. I got the antique brass finish, and it's lovely. Customer service is also great. Highly recommend ACB and the Doubler.

    ACB Flugelhorn

    Posted by Russell on 25th Oct 2021

    These guys are great to deal with. My Flugelhorn was in perfect playable condition right out of the case. This horn was perfect for my needs. I would recommend Austin Custom Brass for anyone looking for this type of instrument. Great communication with my order and I really enjoyed the video they sent of it being played before they shipped it. Thanks for the great experience dealing with your shop Russ

    Nice playing horn!

    Posted by Eric Reid on 11th Oct 2021

    I'm really enjoying this horn. It's visually appealing, no flaws. Construction is great and doesn't seem cheap. Finish is beautiful. I don't care for the spring configuration on the main water key...and that's it for build criticism. Provided mouthpiece plays well...better than the two I had at home. The horn supports both super rich/mellow/clean and slightly brassier/smoky/breathy flugel sounds - depending on the player's desire. I have to work a little to get the former, but I'm new to high brass.

    Review for the ACB Flugelhorn

    Posted by Samuel Garcia on 2nd Oct 2021

    Great flugelhorn from the price to the quality. It’s affordable and plays like a pro horn. The sound is delicate, the perfect flugelhorn sound you can ever ask for. The Satin lacquered finish looks awesome and brings a very classical-jazzy vibe to the look. The valve alignment and slides work great and respond quick. The instrument case is very secure and the straps are a great addition for traveling purposes. My rating out of 5 stars, I’d give this a 6 out of 5 stars. It’s just that good, I now use this horn as my main instrument of choice even though it may be rarely called for.

    Incredible value and great buying experience!

    Posted by Teal on 23rd Sep 2021

    This horn plays shockingly well for how little it costs. The tone quality is great throughout all registers and the intonation is spot on. I went with the raw brass finish because it looks so great in the pictures. My instrument looks just as good as the photos, and I'm excited to see the horn patina over time. Just before my flugel shipped I got an email from Josh personally thanking me for my purchase and a video of him play testing my horn! It was a very nice gesture, especially considering that this isn't an expensive instrument. It goes to show how much ACB values their customers and stands by their products. I'm looking forward to trying out some of the other instruments in the doubler's line!

    Very satisfied with this horn!

    Posted by Eric Carter on 1st May 2021

    After purchasing and being delighted with the ACB doubler’s cornet, I decided to try the doubler’s flugelhorn. I’m very much delighted and impressed with this horn, as well! I can understand why it’s a best seller. It sounds and looks great, and the valves and slides are all nice and smooth. Best of all, it’s really fun to play. The case is very nice, too. I’m quite satisfied, and I highly recommend this instrument!
