The Besson BE967 Euphonium has a 12" diameter bell giving excellent projection. A receiver connected by only a brace as opposed to being completely soldered to the bell allows for free vibration and enhanced tone. Its patented spring damper set creates quieter valve action.
This euphonium looks as good as it plays. By adding gold accents to the valves and slides, Yamaha has created an instrument that is just beautiful. Add to this the developmental aspect with many of the world's finest soloists contriubuting and you have a sound to match the view.
