Thread: Selecting a Besson

  1. #21
    Well if you have your heart set on a Besson, then I wish you good luck on your endeavors to find one. However in the price range I would suggest the Wessex Dolce or the newer Wessex Sinfonico. I own the Dolce myself and I love it, good tone good intonation, good projection, and only at 1500 bucks. The Sinfonico doesn’t have an official release yet but there is a preorder available. I was fortunate to play it at wessex’s showroom and I was hooked, for me it was perfect and I loved every second. So if you want a recommendation, I suggest Wessex

My son's 321 plays very well but he's getting to a level where it may make it more challenging to advance. Thank you!

    Are you still looking? That Boosey and Hawke's is still there at Dillon Music.

    If I didn't already have a Euphonium, I would have bought it.

    Sure it's got some lacquer wear, but that price is really good, and they were made in the same exact factory as the Besson Euph's, by the same people.

  3. HI: I'm still here! The world sort of changed in the last few weeks and I confess I've been distracted. The Euph at Dillons is looking better all the time. Thank You to everyone keeping their eyes peeled and helping with so much good info. I'm a trumpet player (doc says that does Not qualify me for a handicapped sticker) so I'm still learning.

    You can say that again. I was just about to bring my horns in to Dillon Music for some adjustment and de-denting, and now everything is pretty much on hold, for who knows how long.

    Dillon is still running but only curbside service for repairs. They will ship horns and items still I think.

  5. There is a euphonium available over at Tubenet: http://forums.chisham.com/viewtopic....2d67d65a78c588 and it seems very reasonable. I hoping someone more experienced can help me with why it hasn't already been purchased. I mean, without being mean-spirited and all, I'm hot seeing big red flags. Thank You!

    It's possible that disposable income is at a premium right now and people don't want older horns for a student especially a series known to have sharp 6th partials. That horn does look beautiful but I'm afraid I don't know enough about Besson to give proper advice.
