The World’s First and Only B♭ Soprano Bugle
Andalucia AdVance Series Phase III B♭ Bugle!
We set a unique goal during the inception phase of the Andalucia Musical Instruments – By creating a never before seen B♭ trumpet. Our goal was to mount the bell from the King K20 G soprano bugle to a B♭ trumpet and make it work. I was told by many friends within the industry this was an impossible task, because every who tried, failed. Therefore, the challenge was accepted. The result turns out to be stunning. Not only our horn was more in tune than the K20, but it was also more powerful.
A Powerbore version was also developed during the same time with mainstream power players in mind, featuring a slightly narrower bell found on the DEG/Kanstul Powerbore soprano Bugle. These horns are no doubt, some of the most powerful soprano brass ever created! In fact, with our newly developed hybrid brass, this revolutionary design is catching the attention of several heavy hitters in the industry, while the K20 version is changing the world of outdoors marching pageantry.
It is the rebirth of a new era for soprano bugle or TRUMPET, however, you like to call it. The option is now available to those who desire the performance of a soprano G bugle, in the key of B flat.
It is a dream of my to keep the “Bugle” in Drum and Bugle Corps while expending that powerful sound to those who desire it.
