Besson 928 Sovereign Silver Plated Cornet

The Besson 928 Sovereign Silver Plated Cornet (BE928G-2) has the large, full sound that is sought after by brass bands and discriminating soloists alike. The cornet’s gold brass bell allows for a dark sound that not only projects, but blends beautifully. Ideal for the brass or military band, the Sovereign 928 cornet has been the established benchmark against which all top line cornets are measured. Both amateur and professional players adore this instrument with its rich open sound, giving every cornet section a singing vibrant sound that makes bands so exciting to listen to.

The names Boosey & Hawkes and Besson, particularly the Sovereign models, have long been synonymous with the world of brass bands. Manufacturers all over the world have tried to emulate these great instruments but few have truly succeeded. Steps are continually taken to improve its already superior build quality. Many of the world’s leading brass bands choose and trust the Besson Sovereign cornet.
