The Besson Sovereign Bb cornet has been purposefully designed to suit top-level players.
The valves in the BE928G cornet are crafted from monel. This nickel and copper alloy can be found in the majority of premium cornets thanks to its resistant properties.
Besson have included triggers on both the first and third valve slides. Not only do these triggers feel comfortable in your hands, but they also allow for correcting any intonation in the extreme registers. When you hear a whole cornet section play on Sovereign cornets, you hear something special. This is why some of the world's leading brass bands choice Besson Sovereigns for their cornet sections.
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.
The BE928G Bb cornet includes one of Besson's professional burgundy cases. The exterior of the case is made with robust hardwood and finished with silver fittings. The inside of the case is finished with a beautiful soft-touch burgundy material that will keep your instrument gleaming.
The cornet includes an Alliance cornet mouthpiece. Made in conjunction with Dr Roger Webster, this mouthpiece offers a great starting point for the cornet.
