Hi ,
   I have found a trumpet or bugle, it says dallas london and seems very old, i was wondering if you have any information on this item .

Answer
You indeed have a bugle, or "field trumpet". Dallas was the name of an importer and seller of horns in the UK, and was based in London, as you see.

The company is still around and its history can be found here: http://www.dallaspedals.com/History.html

I can answer your questions about Buescher trumpets and cornets. I have been playing Buescher for 35 years and collecting for 7.

Experience

I first started playing my grandfather's Buescher 400 trumpet in 1975. Since then I have done a lot of research, including original catalogs and advertisements that I own, correspondence with other Buescher owners, and obtaining my own Buescher collection, including six trumpets and three cornets.

Education/Credentials
I am a technical writer with 15 years experience. I have also been playing trumpet since 1975 and collecting Buescher for the past 7 years.
