Thread: The Besson Sovereign euphonium: history & review

  1. #11
    Great write-up and playing Vito. I owned a Besson from the 1970's, probably should have kept that one!!

    So, I see from your videos that you were doing a recital for completion of your degree. What plans do you have now for the future? Hope to hear more of your excellent playing!

    My 1983 Round stamp sovereign 967 was definitely made with metal tacquets, which I have since replaced with nylon Willson equivalents, It is also a popular modification to adapt the valves to have the top fitting Besson style valve guides, although this requires extensive valve work.

    Dear readers,
    I am overflowed with positive comments, not only on my writing but also on my playing. Thank you for taking an interest and all the nice comments!

    Yes, I am now fully graduated as a performing euphonium player. I'm currently on the lookout for a job but I'll keep practising and playing in a brass band for sure.
