    Thumbs up Besson 1966 New Standard 3+1 Compensating Euphonium in Frosted Silver Finish

    Noticed this listing on eBay this morning. (Not my horn.)

    Wow - that's one I should have noticed! The valves look to be in great shape, which is a huge factor. The horn has the medium receiver, which makes it even more special given the condition. Buy-it-now price is $2,250.

  3. This is my horn. I usually hang out on one of the other tuba forums. Happy to sell off eBay for $2,000 + shipping if I can avoid fees.

    Top of the heap in the NS line, IMO.

    A steal, too.
