Austin Custom Brass "Doubler's" Flugelhorn: Our #1 selling instrument!
We currently have all finish options in stock! Some are in limited quantities but we have plenty of satin lacquer, antique lacquer, and clear lacquer.
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, copper bell bow, 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.
