Besson Sovereign 955 Bb Baritone BE955


The Sovereign baritone remains the most popular baritone in Besson’s long history and having benefited from several small improvements in recent years, we believe this three-valve compensating instrument will remain the mainstay of the baritone sections of brass bands for years to come. Each instrument is play-tested and checked at the factory by a renowned professional soloist for sound, response and finish.
