A great brass instrument usually begins with a long and colorful history, and Besson instruments are no exception. The company was founded in Paris in 1837, built on the back of a new cornet design that changed how musicians thought of the instrument. Twenty years later, legal sparring from Adolphe Sax led Besson to pack up and move to London. There it stayed until it was bought by Boosey & Hawkes, which turned the Besson brand into a world leader in cornets, tenor horns, baritones, euphoniums and tubas. Today's Besson carries on that tradition with a lineup of brass instruments that are more than ready for the marching band or orchestral stage.
For a real throwback to Besson's beginnings, you might like to play the instrument that started it all - a cornet. Take a look at the BE2028 Prestige Series Bb Cornet and the BE928 Sovereign Series Bb Cornet to see what you have to choose from. Or, if you prefer your horns a little bigger, maybe a trumpet is the way to go. With models like the BE1000 and BE2000 Performance Series Bb trumpets, Besson has certainly figured out the right balance of affordability and performance to satisfy a discerning musician without breaking the bank.
When you move on to the larger Besson instruments, your options open up even further. Euphoniums range from the 4-valve BE1065 Performance Series to the stunning BE2052 Prestige Series Compensating Euphonium. Besson's tubas take it up another notch with models like the BE995 Sovereign Series 5-Valve 4/4 CC Tuba. And those are just a few highlights from a selection that also features plenty of tenor horns, baritones and more.
It takes a lot of experience to craft a world-class horn, and a heap of variety to make sure there's a perfect instrument to fit every player. The best asset Besson has to its name is an abundance of those two things, so if you're looking for a well-built cornet, trumpet, euphonium, horn or tuba backed by almost two centuries of know-how, then you've come to the right place. The only question left to ask is which instrument is right for you?
