"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.

    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!

    ACB Doublers Flugelhorn

    Posted by Caleb on 18th Apr 2021

    The horns get to MO and have ACB's "magic" done to them. After the total cost for the horns and time put into them the profit cannot be huge. It seems this is not the reasoning behind making them available. Trent's team is dedicated to providing quality to anyone, not to only those that can afford it. You compare these ACB doublers to any other horn mass produced outside of the US and they will never play like these do. I have been blessed to play in the military for 8 years now. I once was playing on a Kanstul 1525, until it was lost to a military move, then played on various pro horns. Most recently, I have been playing the Yamaha Bobby Shew. I am more than comfortable putting down any of the available pro horns at our disposal to exclusively use Trent Austin's doubler flugel. Great job and thank you for providing quality at such a great deal!

    Doubler’s flugel

    Posted by Brad Niemi on 7th Feb 2021

    Great horn, and not just “great considering what it costs.” I have to think the tweaks that the guys in the shop do to these flugels before shipping them to customers makes a very big difference in how they play. For someone like myself, who uses a flugel on maybe 30% of gigs, the doubler is an especially great choice. Plus, you will not find better people to deal with than Trent, Josh and Kyle and the guys! GREAT company, great products....what else could you ask for?

    ACB Doubler flugelhorn

    Posted by Christopher Peterson on 18th Jan 2021

    I'm very pleased. This is a lot of horn for the money. Fit and finish is good. It sounds good and has good intonation. I'm a hobbiest who has been playing about 2 years. I also played for 10 years as a youth.

    ACB Doubler's Flugelhorn

    Posted by Brian Miller on 8th Dec 2020

    I am really enjoying this horn. It's easy to play, has great intonation, is very versatile from low to high ranges, and is great-looking. I suppose I am the ideal customer for this horn: haven't owned a flugelhorn before, always wanted one, seeking a rich sound but not an expensive intimidating horn. This fits the bill perfectly. I would be leery of a bargain-priced horn from elsewhere, but ACB's products have always been top-notch. This is no different. I paired it with a Fab 5 mouthpiece, a perfect match, since I already play the same rim size in my 3CS trumpet mpc.

    Purchase of doublers flugelhorn

    Posted by Susan racloz on 7th Dec 2020

    The personal attention and customer service is excellent. I loved getting the email of Trent playing “my horn”. The people at ACB go above and beyond. The satin finish was much nicer in person than in the picture. I am very satisfied with my horn and with ACB. I was referred to your company by my trumpet teacher, Josh Meade, who also purchased a horn from you and is waiting for his new horn to arrive.
