Besson Sovereign BE967-1-0 Bb Euphonium Laquered

Serial number #832XXX

Second hand Instrument

The Sovereign BE967 euphonium is the standard large bore instrument of the brass band world. Since the inception of the Sovereign euphonium in 1972, this instrument has led the way with a sound quality that perfectly exemplifies the meaning of the word euphonium itself, 'beautiful sounding', with a cantabile style all of its own.

It has 4 valves with its famous compensating tuning system, 3 water keys, the innovative positionning of the leadpipe away from the bell for a lively response; the improved taper on the mouthpipe for improved intonation are just a few of its notable features. The pedal tones are huge, the best ever, as is the flexibility.

This is an elegant romantic instrument. Its clear centred high register allows the player freedom to 'sing' through the instrument.
