The Besson Sovereign BE981 Eb tuba has been purposefully designed to suit top-level players. Thanks to the hand-hammered yellow brass bell, its beautiful tone allows for exciting melodic lines - no matter what the dynamic. Yellow brass is the preferred material of choice by musicians who require a versatile tone. This is especially important with the Besson tuba, because it's easy to control your tone.
To ensure you have a seamless experience, the valves in the BE981 tuba are crafted from stainless steel. Steel valves are found in all large premium instruments from Besson thanks to their resistant properties.
Besson Sovereign instruments have gained a legendary reputation among the brass band community. Handmade in Germany, all Sovereign instruments are built to be easy-blowing and flexible to play. The sound quality of Sovereign instruments has become the very essence of the brass band tone, and this is why they are the most widely used band instruments in the world. All Sovereign instruments have their own devoted solo players, and even whole sections of the world's finest bands perform on Sovereigns.
The BE981 tuba includes a professional hard case. The exterior of the case is made with robust ABS and finished with the Besson logo. The inside of the case is finished with a beautiful soft-touch burgundy material.
To ensure that you can start playing straight away, the tuba includes an Alliance mouthpiece. Made in conjunction with Dr Roger Webster and James Gourlay, this mouthpiece offers a great starting point for the tuba.
Also available for special order is the BE982 model with carriage rings and a slightly smaller tapered leadpipe. Please contact us for details
