Always leading the way with research and development, the Besson cornets allow the player to adapt effortlessly between the ever increasing stylistic demands made by our contemporary composers. The Sovereign cornets have evolved gradually over the psat decades and possess the true Besson sound and now more assured mechanical performance.
Since joining the Buffet Crampon group in 2006, new tooling has been implemented and laser measuring of past models has taken place. This reference to older models such as Imperial, New Standard and early Sovereign is to ensure the original designs and ethos of the Besson sound are accurately respected and represented.
Bells are hand hammered and hand spun, as was the case prior to the early 90s. This method avoids over tensioning the metal and ultimately produces more sonorous instruments. Each valve is individually hand lapped and perfectly fitted.
Roger Webster: These instruments are fantastic! The feeling of total quality takes me back to the 70s and 80s when the only instrument worth having was a Besson
