To celebrate their 180th anniversary, Besson have produced a special limited edition set of 180 brass instruments. Included in these are x70 only Bb Cornets in this special finish with various unique specs and trim.

The BE928 180th Anniversary Model is finished in a gorgeous matt silver frosted satin plate. The tuning slides, inner bell and finishing parts are in bright silver plate making this a very attractive combination that harks back to some earlier Besson finish options from the 70's and 80's.

The instrument will also feature the new Besson London brand logo engraved on the bell, this marks the new branding for Besson brass from 2018 onwards. Every single instrument in this commemorative series will also have a unique special engraving on the bell to mark the anniversary and to set these instruments apart as very special indeed.

Underneath the limited edition finishing lies the classic 928 Sovereign design. The .460 bore and tapering on the lead pipe and bell offer the modern player a rich yet flexible tone that allows the Cornet to be used in the most demanding professional environments. The 1st and 3rd slide triggers help with quick intonation adjustments and the extremely reliable valve section has been recently improved further to make for a fluid and responsive action.

In summary, this takes an already modern legend and transforms it into a piece of history. Stock is extremely limited, with just x70 of these Bb Cornets being available worldwide.

Each instrument we supply will be fully checked and set-up in our workshops prior to sale to ensure it comes to you lubricated and ready to play. The instruments will be supplied with a limited edition case in the original 'Royal Blue' Besson colour and also comes supplied with a Denis Wick frosted satin plate mouthpiece with gold plated rim and cup.
