Keyed bugle

This instrument was used by the 48th/49th Regiment Band. It was given to the Aldershot Town Band by the James Haliday's son, who invented the Royal Kent Bugle in 1810. It is a single-coiled, keyed bugle made of copper with brass trimmings (rim, mouthpiece receiver) and keywork. It has six flat, round-cover keys mounted in saddles, and a modern tuning bit attached. The bell seam has tabs and the ferrule that joins both sections of tubing is of nickel-silver. Nominal pitch: 4-foot C.
