My main tenor at the moment is an early 1960's Kohlert.

My other tenor is being overhauled and is a Buescher Aristocrat from 1952. I've got my eye on a couple of others that I would like to try. I agree,, you can never have too many saxes, ( as many as you can afford)...

And of course always looking for some more vintage only...

It first spread to England in 1764 where it was gradually accepted widely in foot regiments.

18th-century cavalry did not normally use a standard bugle, but rather an early trumpet that might be mistaken for a bugle today, as it lacked keys or valves, but had a more gradual taper and a smaller bell, producing a sound more easily audible at close range but with less carrying power over distance.

See bugle call for scores to standard bugle calls, all consisting of only five notes. Predecessors and relatives of the bugle included the post horn, the Pless horn (sometimes called the "Prince Pless horn"), and the bugle horn. The first verifiable formal use of a brass bugle as a military signal device was the Halbmondbläser, or half-moon bugle, used in Hanover in 1758.

It was U-shaped (hence its name) and comfortably carried by a shoulder strap attached at the mouthpiece and bell.
