Andalucia AdVance Series Phase III Bb Bugle!
Between 1977 to 1991, the King K20 Soprano Bugle was the choice of many Drum Corps International (DCI) world champions. Due to its wide flare bell, large bore valve casing and extended lead pipe, the K20 produced an unmatchable volume and overtone. Unfortunately, the K20 was unsuitable outside of DCI for being in key of G! Countless top ranked high school and university marching bands around the world have attempted to capture the sound of the Soprano G bugle - All without success. The magic of G bugle was lost when Drum Corps International switched to traditional key in 2000. Even though major manufactures have bridged the gap on Mellophone, baritone and Euphonium, the sound of Soprano Bugle remains missing. Several trumpet manufactures have attempted to fit the K20 bugle bell onto a B Flat trumpet but all without success! It was the first project I took on when this company was established.
Through months of R&D, I was able to locate the original bell mandrel for the K20 and started to work on this so-called impossible project, and the result was stunning! Not only this new horn surpassed the sound produced by the King K20 Soprano Bugle, it also plays more in tune and slots better above the staff! A downscaled Powerbore version was also developed at the same time for lead players. These horns are no doubt, some of the most powerful soprano brass ever created! In fact, with our newly developed hybrid gold brass, this revolutionary design is catching the attention of several heavy hitters in the industry. Not only the K20 version changed the world of marching pageantry, the Powerbore version is rocking the mainstream trumpet world! It is the rebirth of a new era for Bugles, or Trumpet, how ever you like to call it!
Let's the the "Bugle" in Drum and Bugle Corps!
