Bugle in C
This instrument might be associated with the Cyfarthfa Band, one of the greatest and oldest virtuoso nineteen-century brass bands, founded in 1838 by iron magnate Robert Thompson Crawshay. It is a single-coiled, bugle made of copper with brass trimmings (rim, mouthpiece receiver, ferrule, and ring-plates). The mouthpiece ferrule has a small ring for a mouthpiece chain, and each bow has a ring for a cord attachment.
