1913 National Guard Fife, Drum, Bugle & Bell Corps
Pretty snappy for their time.
Per Frank Dorritie, "These recordings are remarkable and the playing is state of the art for the context. You may be interested that the bugles used herein are in the Key of F, meaning they are the Cavalry type, or possibly, Regulation G's with the tuning slides pulled out to the F line, though this is less likely given the superb intonation and tone here.
"Also attached a pic of my own fully restored Edison Cylinder Player."
