The Besson Sovereign BE967 euphonium is a less expensive option than its big brother the Prestige, but the Sovereign still offers the superb traditional Besson sound. The euphonium's lead pipe is not directly soldered to the bell, but is instead connected by a brace, allowing the bell to vibrate more freely. A fantastic playing experience. Compensating system for improved intonation in the lower register.

14.73mm (.580") bore. Floating leadpipe allows bell to vibrate, enhancing tone. Weight: 4.5kg (9lb 15oz). Bell diameter: 304.88mm (12") upright. Bell rim rolled and soldered over brass bell wire, which adds strength and protection to the bell. 4 bottom-sprung stainless steel valves for faster action. 3 water keys including 3rd valve slide. Nickel silver tuning slides resist corrosion. Synthetic rubber water key seals. 2nd valve finger ring. Patented spring damper set for quieter valve action. Water reservoir protects clothes from leaking moisture from pistons.
