I am in the market to buy a new Elk bugle this year and would like your opinions on what is easy to use, flat out just works,and sounds great?
Glen Berry thunder bugle with red reeds
Absolutely love my Phelps un-Rival-ed bugle tube. Sounds great and is more compact than most others so it’s easy to carry and maneuver.
Power Bugle, light colored bands.
One that not everyone else has and one you can make your own reeds on.
Phelps black reed with the Berry Game Calls Golden Tone Shorty tube, deadly combo.
Reeds or diaphragm based?
I use a power bugle, with light grey bands. I also pull the mouth piece and use a diaphragm depending what sounds I want to make
Sorry for the double post
Try one of them new Riven tubes! Heard they’re amazing.
^^^ Lungshot, that tube must be government procurement only. Who else would spend $450 on a $30 tube?
ELK Power Bugle. Light grey band and a cap with extra bands incase. I can get a 4 year old to bugle with it.
^^^ LMAO. Had to post it just for the ridiculous factor. Will be a cold day down under before I spent that much money on a tube.
^^^ HAHA... Can you imagine the panic felt when you get back to the truck and realize that the tube was left laying on tree on the ground where you dropped a deuce earlier that afternoon?
Remember when all we use was a whiffle ball bat? I remember the first bugle tube I saw for over $50 and I thought that was redonkulous....
There's no way anyone has ever bought one of those lol.
