009, cool - I’ve been searching like crazy for the last few days. One of the first things I did was listen to recordings of Taps in Bb and G, I think I prefer Bb. I found a few comments that Bb is more what people are used to hearing these days.

I haven’t seen anything about one key being harder to play than the other - yet. Do you remember which was which?

Interesting - I was just reading a few posts by people claiming to be active and former military band members, and one stated that he has never seen a bugle used for Taps in his whole career - that even the Armed Forces School of Music teaches it on Bb trumpet.

I wish trumpet77 was still around, having the perspective of a military band member would be great. All of you trumpet players are beginning to sway me...

It’s about embouchure. You’re going to have to build that up sufficiently to play taps well. That’s a lot of very boring practice on a bugle. Why not get a trumpet and play songs too? The practice and conditioning of your lip muscles will be much more enjoyable.

I did not see the player depressing any keys at all, playing the trumpet as if it were a bugle.... (so it seems).

Well, it looks like trumpet is the way to go....

(Now, you have to choose either a B-flat or C trumpet... seems like "C" is the current choice)

The first search result in my link above has a great discussion by people who play at military funerals. Nobody uses a bugle.

In another discussion, some Viet Nam era guy said he played at many military funerals then, and always with a trumpet.

Yep, overwhelming opinion and advice to do this on trumpet. If I were doing Civil War or SpanAm reenacting, it would make more sense to learn field trumpet or bugle. For what I want to do, not so much.

Between the comments here (especially from bluesmama, who I’ll bet has forgotten more about trumpet just this last week than I will ever hope to learn *waves*), from my friend’s son and from t77 via email, this is a no-brainer. I’m leaning heavily to a used Bb, something like a Yamaha or (this one is recommended by a lot of people) a Getzen 300.

The search begins... thanks, y’all!

Can’t go wrong with a Yamaha or a Getzen...I’d add Bach to that list if you find a good price on a used one.

I had an Olds back in the day. I miss it. I see them pop up from time to time. Out of my reach now.

One of the Olds student models gets a lot of mentions. I like the idea of a Getzen since I have a fondness for their hometown.

Stumbled on this early this morning.

Interesting story, if you just want to hear a bit of the music forward to 12:30.

Youse are probably getting sick of this... but I have a 1975 vintage Olds Ambassador in Bb on the way. Looking for a teacher now, I don't want to impose on my friend's son.

There is a local music store where the owner is a trumpet, cornet collector, He buys, sells and trades. He's been doing this for several decades.

Tom's Guitar Warehouse, Medford Oregon.
Owner's name is Duane Hess.

Nice choice!

Beck in the day I had a silver Olds Superstar. Tone for days.

The Olds arrived yesterday and was given a clean bill of health by my friend’s son. Still looking for a teacher, though.

Maybe Bob can return to the FDP with the new handle of "Burglar77."
