    Default WTB Bugle

    I'm looking for a bugle so I can learn to play the skirmish calls for my company. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Does anyone have a reccomendation on where to purchase a bugle that is period correct? I've looked at Amati and some others but the spit valves just seem a little over the top.

    Sir, please visit this site:

    http://www.rjsamp.com/

    You will find lots of information about being a reenactor bugler. You need to find a B-flat clairon style bugle for infantry bugling. Amati makes one, and you could also look for a bugle make by J.H.Berger specifically for Civil War reenacting... both copper and brass ones are available... You can also contact the reenactor bugler who operates the above website, or also do a search on this website for bugle. There is a ton of info here! Good luck!

    OR you could find some material here for Civil War Bugling:

    http://tapsbugler.com/civil-war-re-e...or-the-bugler/

    AND for information on bugles (including the Berger Bugle) you can try this link
    http://tapsbugler.com/bugles-for-use...il-war-events/

    Both have further links and lots of audio files and downloadable material. Maybe not a ton of info as the above mentioned site but, it will keep you busy for a while...

    And don't forget the 150th Anniversary of Taps happens June 22-24 at Berkeley Plantation!
