    Default Can you guys identify this Instrument?

    So I got this as a present from my grandpa and I have no idea how it's called, since I've never been in a band before. Can you guys help me out?

    It would help if you could show a complete image instead of a close-up - could it be a marching French horn?

    The two pictures on the bottom show the full instrument, you can scroll down a bit.
    Hmm doesn't look like the french horn.

    Looks like a bugle of some sort.

    It appears to be some sort of bugle...I don't see any valves....drum/bugle corps feature all different sizes/pitches of bugles.

    No valves, but does it have a slide? Perhaps it's a soprano trombone?

    My guess is a tenor voice bugle. The mouthpiece is t-bone size. Check on the Trumpet Herald site.

    I'm thinking Bugle too. There's a label on the bell. Seeing that might be helpful.
