Product details

Besson Sovereign euphoniums are an example of the British mastery of brass manufacturing. Both BE967 and BE968 are fully compensating instruments, and are probably the most free-blowing euphoniums on the market with a clear and powerful sound right throughout its entire range.

Unique benefits

The Sovereign BE967 euphonium is the standard large bore instrument of the brass band world. Since the inception of the Sovereign euphonium in 1972, this instrument has led the way with a sound quality that perfectly exemplifies the meaning of the word euphonium itself, 'beautiful sounding', with a cantabile style all of its own.

Just a few of the BE967 notable features:

 

  • 4 valves with its famous compensating tuning system
  • 3 water keys
  • The innovative positioning of the leadpipe away from the bell for a lively response
  • Improved taper on the mouthpipe for improved intonation
  • The pedal tones are huge, the best ever, as is the flexibility

 

This is an elegant romantic instrument. Its clear centred high register allows you the player freedom to "sing" through the instrument.

Supplied with

Supplied outfit, in case with Alliance mouthpiece in leather case and accessories including a micro-fibre cloth, valve oil, lyre and a removable water catcher.

  • Sovereign 967

    By: ,

    The Sovereign 967 is a superb instrument. It is very easy to play as it is free flowing and produces a rich, full and rounded sound. The valve action is superb with a very free action that is superbly responsive allowing fast and intricate passages to be played without the problem of valve lag that happens in poorer quality instruments. The build quality and finish are superb and the attention to detail such as corking on the rear of the water keys to prevent the key coming into contact with the instrument when used is outstanding.
    Yes, this is an expensive instrument but you get what you pay for and this instrument is very high quality and easily justifies its price.
