    1975 Besson Imperial vs Early 70s Besson New Standard

    I have been blessed with the chance to choose between these two wonderful horns. My question is, what are your thoughts between these two? Anything from tuning, upkeep, valves, or just holding. I wish to gather as much info as possible on the two.

  2. As long as both of them are medium shank, they are essentially the same horn produced at the same facility to the same acoustic spec. The only difference was valve caps, finger buttons, and engraving. A bit like GMC vs. Chevrolet pickup trucks.
