Besson Sovereign BE928GT Bb Cornet outfit S/P with prestige style main tuning slide trigger
Besson Sovereign BE928GT Bb Cornet outfit S/P with prestige style main tuning slide trigger.
The Sovereign 928 cornet has been described as the established benchmark against which all top line cornets are measured. Both amateur and professional players adore this instrument with its rich open sound, giving every cornet section a singing vibrant sound that makes bands so exciting to listen to. Superior build quality in the last years has seen the status of this classic cornet raised higher and higher. Many of the UK’s leading brass bands choose and trust the Besson Sovereign cornet.
The addition of the main tuning slide trigger gives the player the flexibility on intonation when using a mute or in certain registers as found on the Prestige cornet, whilst retaining the easy blowing characteristics of the sovereign cornet.
