    I own an Andalucia Advance Series Phase III Bb Soprano Bugle (also marketed as a trumpet) - photo below.

    If it has a shepherd's crook and a conical bore, you have to wonder what makes it a bugle (over a cornet) besides the mouthpiece receiver...

    The Andalucia horn has a larger bell than a standard trumpet, and is "large bore" for what that is worth. The bell is the same as the bell on a King K20 soprano bugle, vintage 1980's. The instrumentation in drum and bugle corps has changed over the years from straight bugles to G-D horns to G-F horns (horizontal piston and rotor) to two piston valves in G, to three valves in G, to three valves in Bb. The current Bb soprano "bugle" is really a trumpet designed to project a big sound outdoors.

    I know what you're talking about. Conn also made a Bb trumpet for a short time in the 1900s that had a shepherd's crook, although it was the more gently sloping kind that resembled the Perfected Wonder cornets they were selling at the time.

    I know, I played back in the 2-valve days. Used one of the rare Benge bugles (American Command), can't remember which corps I was with at the time.
