Thread: FS: Besson German 967 in Silver - Excellent Condition

    Thumbs up FS: Besson German 967 in Silver - Excellent Condition

    This is a great-looking horn! The case is included and also looks near perfect. Buy-it-now price is $4,699 and there IS a make-offer button. That's a very fair price, IMHO. (Many more photos in the listing)

    SOLD, APPARENTLY

  2. Stellar instrument and a good initial price that could undoubtedly be negotiated lower. I'd consider it if I was in the market for a Besson.

    Not sure I agree on price. The new price is $8200 from Brasswind. This one is 57% of the new price. (But making a lower offer is not usually a bad idea - you never know!)

    I have found a Besson Soverign 967 Euphonium on Ebay for $2500.The sn is 723XXX dating it to 85/86 .I have made an offer on it. It doesn't have the Germany( Made in Germany) engraving on the mouthpiece receiver as the modern ones.
    Are the Stats the same on this era 967 Soverign as the current 967 Soverigns?
    As I understand the current model 967 has a 12 " bell with a 590/650 bore.
    Thank You and Happy Holidays,
    John McKevitt

    My memory of the 967's I owned around those years is that the bell is 12" as you speculated. But the bore was about .580" on the main, .610" on the first compensating path and .630" on the 4th valve. (Those latter two may be off.)

    The Sovereign model from England was made with the same valves and body as the New Standard and B&H Imperial. The Sovereign had its own leadpipe and bell. So bore specs would be the same as the more historic Bessons.
