About the Besson BE968-2-0 Bb Euphonium
The Besson Sovereign 968 Euphonium has a lively response, golden tone and wonderful valve action. They are known and trusted by band players all over the world. The Besson BE-968-2-0 is finished in bright silverplate.
The Sovereign euphoniums are slightly lighter in weight than the Prestige models, providing a very open and free-blowing feel with an immediacy of response that appeals to many musicians.
All the Sovereign models are large bore four-valve compensating instruments. The 11" bells on the Besson 968 models are slightly smaller than their 967 counterparts. Sovereign euphoniums have a facility and versatility that make them highly sought-after euphoniums, and like all the Besson brass range, have benefited greatly from developments in valve technology since production commenced in Germany.
