ACB Doubler's Flugelhorn (with your choice of finish!)
Austin Custom Brass has created an exciting line of high quality, budget-friendly custom instruments designed for doubling. If you want to play flugelhorn but can't justify paying top dollar for a brand-name instrument our Doubler's flugelhorn was created with your needs in mind. The 'Doubler' name is meant to for our series of horn that are a high quality and consistent and designed to be at a price point for people who need a professional horn but do not play one regularly enough to justify an investment of the sort you’d need for many of the pro quality horns on the market. This series gives people the opportunity to “double” on another horn without breaking the bank and without sacrificing quality.
This is a great option if you need a flugelhorn for playing in a big band section or want to broaden your palette as a jazz soloist. It's also a great option for a comeback player, hobbyist, or student!
This flugelhorn has a 6 inch bell that is almost 100% copper and a classic flugelhorn bore (.413"). It uses the large shank taper. The horn has a third-valve trigger for improved intonation. The valves are Monel and bottom-sprung. This flugelhorn is designed to make it easy to switch between flugel and your trumpet or cornet.
We perform a few custom alterations before we ship it to you, including a precision valve alignment, custom spring adjustment, a new leadpipe, extensive play-testing, and more. We spend at least 2 hours per horn adjusting and play-testing! The result is an incredible flugelhorn for a supremely great price!
Here's a review from one of our customers Mark Russo (3/28/19):
"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!!”
