The Besson company was founded in 1837 by Gustave August Besson in Paris. His instruments became famous in Europe and have become a gold standard in the Euphonium community.

This Besson 966 Sovereign Compensating Euphonium comes in a silver plated finish and is in great playing shape. The euphonium features an 11 inch bell, medium large bore, and has plastic valve guides. The instrument produces a warm sound throughout all the registers. Articulations are crisp but still have the warmth you find amongst Besson euphoniums. The valves have quick action, tuning slides move freely, and the 4th valve retention paddle moves well.
