First off, the members of the bugle family are the trumpet, the marching euphonium, the mellophone, and the contrabass bugle, as seen in drum and bugle corps. A bugle, in the military, is a brass instrument with no valves used to project musical commands called "bugle calls." If this is the type of bugle you're talking about, its closest relative would be the trumpet. Hope this helped! :)

The activity originated in the United States and Canada, but has spread to parts of Europe and Asia. Typically operating as independent non-profit organizations, drum corps perform on-field competitions, parades, festivals and other civic functions. * http://www.bandarrangers.com/screammachine/default.asp

My Anwser: Yes, Because I own a Bugle and 2 trumpets.... the mothpiece that came with the bugle is quite moldy and disgussing so I use my trumpet mouth piece on my bugle....... The Bugle is over 30 yrs. Old. Its older than me! The real answer…
If the bugle is in the normal key of B-flat, then the notes played by the bugle correspond to the open notes of the trumpet - no valves pressed down at all. If the bugle is in a different key than the trumpet, you will need to transpose the bugle notes into the key of the trumpet to find which notes to play on the trumpet. After you have done the transposition, it should be…
