    FS: 1974 Besson New Standard euphonium

    For sale is a Besson New Standard from 1974 (sn 567xxx) wich I'm selling due to tuiton fees for college.
    the horn has been in my possession for 3 years now and is an excellent example of a good all-round euphonium. The euphonium itself is in a good shape; some little dings on the side and bottom bow as you can expect from an instrument this age but nothing big or major. There's also some wear on the silverplate, especially on the third valve slide (it gives the instrument something unique and retro in my opinion though), valves are in really good shape for the age. Intonation is great for a Besson, High Eb, E & F are suprisingly good in tune.
    The horn has been ultrasonically cleaned less than six months ago and has been maintained very well. Comes with a gigbag or a hardcase at the buyer's choice
    Asking price is 2000$ + Paypal fee, I'll cover the shipping costs from location myself (150$). Feel free to ask me more information or pictures, sensible offers are also welcome
    Kind Regards!

    Thanks, Vito!

    To ALL: please note that what I added to the 'read first' post is 1) to let us know items are sold by adding a comment, and 2) to NOT delete the original text. We like to refer to previous listings for info/perspective. Thanks.
