Description

Besson BE967 Sovereign 4 Valve Compensating Euphonium

The Besson BE967 Sovereign 4 Valve Compensating Euphonium has a 12“ diameter bell resulting in excellent projection. The mouthpiece receiver is connected by a brace as opposed to being completely soldered to the bell. This allows for free vibration and enhanced tone. The patented spring damper set creates quieter valve action.
