Thread: US Military Bugle

  1. US Military Bugle

    I was wondering if there was a Company/specific model that all US Military Bugles are. Iíve been looking around but havenít ever seen a specific model name of them mentioned. Thanks

    The US Army Band (“Pershing's Own”) has for many years used a B flat Bach Stradivarius Bugle. This band is about the only one of the main service bands still using a bugle. Most others simply use a trumpet.

  3. When Kanstul was still in business, they produced several bugle models that were used by various branches of the military. They made a set of 2-valved G bugles for The Commandant's Own US Marine Drum & Bugle Corps, I believe a set of custom single valved bugles for The US Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, and their ceremonial bugles were used as well.

    I think Getzen still makes ceremonial bugles that the military uses.
