Very nice horn . Triggers work quickly and smoothly , cornet plays easily and in tune . Valves respond nicely. The tone is warm , if somewhat bright. A great value for a pro quality cornet !
ACB Doubler's dual Trigger Large Bore Shepherd's crook cornet
It took us a bit of time to tweak these to the point where we'd be comfortable selling but after a bunch of trial cornets (most which ended up returned to the warehouse) these horns are a keeper! Perfect with a short shank mouthpiece (the ACB short shank cornet mouthpiece is pictured) this horn has a wonderfully rich sound and very smooth response. It has a .468 bore, a standard throat 4 3/4 inch bell, and dual triggers. This is a perfect option for the player who just signed up for Brass Band and doesn't want to spend 3-4K on a world-class cornet. Check this horn out!
This horn has some minor lacquer blemishes, and a small ding on the leadpipe. Save some money off of the price of a new cornet!

ACB Doubler’s Cornet – a review
Rating: 5 Stars
This cornet is a fine instrument. The valve action is fast and crisp, the horn slots well and the range is excellent. Josh was certainly right when he told me it was unbeatable at this price point. I own a number of cornets (purchased used) that all play well, but not better than this one. This will be my number one pick for my work in parades (over ½ dozen each summer) and for performances of my Dixieland Band, which performs many times per year. I am perfectly satisfied with the Doubler’s!
