Thread: 1973 Besson New Standard Compensating Euphonium

  1. Thumbs up 1973 Besson New Standard Compensating Euphonium

    Today i will be selling a 1973(serial 525XXX) Besson New Standard made in England Euphonium with a soundwear gigbag. This euphonium is a well sought after horn for incoming college students because of its nice warm "Besson sound" u can achieve. All valves and slides freely move and has new felts on the valves and corks on the water keys. As a result of this horn being around 46 years old the valves are slightly corroded and it is missing a good amount of its silver plating which is mainly on the back side of the horn, so it wont be noticeable in a concert setting. Besides the few dents, and missing silver plating this horn plays fantastic. Plus its sound wear gig bag case is being sold at an unbelievable deal!! $1700.00, if you have any further questions about the horn please message me, thanks!Click image for larger version.
