Johnson's Instruments and Music paragraph 3

Main content

Johnson was known for his virtuosity as a performer on the Kent bugle. It was a bugle with keys, much like the modern saxophone, instead of valves, like a trumpet or cornet. The first patent on a keyed bugle was registered in London in 1810, and the instrument was introduced in the United States the following year. This instrument, dating from Johnson's lifetime, is similar to the bugle that Johnson would have played.
