I stumbled accross quite a find the other day. I foud this little antique store and outside they had a couple wierd brass instruments. I was immediatley drawn to these two bugle like instruments. One has two valves and one is more like a bugel and has one valve.
Here are some pics. I would like a lesson in what these are, what they are used for etc please
One the bell of the two valved one says "Ultratone II F.E. Olds and Son Fullerton Calif." The serial # is 019443
On the one valved bugel it says "Peate"and the serial # is 127.
PS - They are very stinky (peeeuuuuuu)
