OVERVIEW

Smooth, quiet action with more free vibrations.

The Besson BE968 Sovereign Series Compensating Euphonium is designed as a soloist instrument. The BE968 Series has a slightly smaller bell to give greater control to the sound and allow better ease of use in the softer dynamics. The 968 Sovereign has 4 stainless steel piston valves (3 top and 1 side action) with a large shank mouthpiece receiver. The Besson BE968 Sovereign Series Compensating Euphonium includes a case and mouthpiece and is available in lacquer (BE968-1-0) or silver (BE968-2-0) finish.

BE968 Sovereign Euphonium
Built in the traditional brass band style
The Besson BE968 Euphonium is an example of the mastery of brass manufacturing. A compensating instrument, this euphonium has improved intonation in the lower register. The euphonium's mouthpipe is not directly soldered to the bell, but is instead connected by a brace, allowing the bell to vibrate more freely. Equipped with a patented spring damper set, the BE968 Euphonium's valves work quietly and efficiently
