Thread: Besson New Standard

  1. Besson New Standard

    I'm checking out this listing on eBay.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/BESSON-4-4-B...item3f306281cc

    Anyone know anything about this horn? Seems to be a bit expensive. Plus he calls it a "tuba." At least he didn't call it a "baby tuba...."

    It is a tuba. The Besson tubas had a bell that was not very large, so that fools your eyes. But look at the length of the 2nd valve slide. Also note how the 4th valve peeks out between two tubes instead of beneath them like a euphonium would.

  3. Sorry... You should probably delete this post then. I will now pull foot out of mouth.

    I'm sure you are not the first who thought this about this listing (or other similar). I'll leave it in place for others' benefit.
