Besson Sovereign 967 Euphonium (Silver Plate-Large Bore)


A slightly less expensive option than the Prestige, the Sovereign still offers the superb traditional Besson sound.

The euphonium's lead pipe is not directly soldered to the bell, but is instead connected by a brace, allowing the bell to vibrate more freely. A fantastic playing experience.
