Besson BE-955 Sovereign Compensated 3-valve Baritone Horn. Besson BE-955 Sovereign Baritone Horn - Excellent Condition.
This is a very nice Besson baritone made 2010 in Germany. This is the 955 Sovereign, with a 9-1/2 bell. It is fully compensated which definitely helps the intonation.
It is in excellent original condition with some pings, minor scratches and a small minor dent (that I can't get to photograph - see photo 10). The leadpipe has never been damaged or modified. All slides and valves are broken in and work excellently.
The horn has been well kept and babied by a single owner. It was played for 3 years in a brass band and then I switched to alto.
The original case is very good shape. Some minor scrapes on the outside.
This is a superbly versatile and beautifully sounding horn. I like the 955 much more than the 4-valve 956 Besson Prestige. It's much lighter, and you're unlikely to ever need that 4th valve in brass band literature. This one is priced less than half of a new one. They are not easy to find used in great condition.Please look carefully at the pictures. From a smoke-free, pet-free home. _gsrx_vers_841 GS 7.0.16 (841).
