The Besson Sovereign 967 euphoniums with their lively response, ‘classic’ BESSON tone and wonderful valve action are known and trusted by players all over the world. 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, with the bell size of the 968 slightly smaller than the 967.
Finished in bright silver plate the 967 model features a 12″ hand made yellow brass bell and 0.590″ bore. Supplied in a Besson hard case with lyre, removable water catcher, cleaning cloth and valve oil.
Also available in clear lacquer finish to order and in various options such as the 968 with 11″ bell or the 968T/967T with additional main tuning slide trigger. We have a demo instrument available in store to play test.
