Besson BE2056 Prestige Baritone Horn
The Besson baritone has for years been regarded as the leading top of the range baritone in the world of brass bands.
The Prestige BE2056 baritone horn is a four-valve compensating baritone, facilitating exactly the same full chromatic range as the euphonium of up to five octaves, should you ever need it, meaning that this instrument is suitable for anyone wanting a quality professional level instrument.
- The slightly heavier weight of the Prestige compared to the Sovereign also gives this instrument a different tonal characteristic, perhaps more concentrated yet still alive and vibrant, and in the hands of the world’s greatest baritone soloists and band players we hear all these possibilities gloriously demonstrated
- The Prestige also features gold plated finger buttons, caps and water keys
- A 4th valve also enables a wide range of alternate fingerings to help facilitate intonation and in the performance of more difficult phrases
The Besson BE2056 baritone is supplied with a deluxe shaped case with wooden frame and black cover with outside pouch and shoulder straps, perfect for protecting your instrument, along with an Alliance mouthpiece, a lyre, micro-fibre cloth and valve oil.
