The flugelhorn is a member of the horn family, specifically the brass family, which in turn is a member of the wind instrument family (Aerophones). Instrument scholar Anthony Baines describes it as a valve bugle which is related to both the key bugle (a precursor of the bass saxophone, which was replaced by the tuba in orchestras) and the signal horn (a bugle used as a signal in battle).

Flugelhorns have a short, wide mouthpiece; three or four valves; and a flared bell. They range in size from bass instruments with wider bores (the bore is the inside diameter of the tubing) to small soprano horns in f or e flat. To the casual observer, a flugelhorn looks very much like a trumpet or cornet.
