The Besson Prestige Euphonium has been designed to meet the needs of top players everywhere. As a recommendation of some of the world top soloists, for the first time ever the sensational main tuning slide trigger comes as standard, allowing players complete control of pitch, throughout the entire range.
The sound quality is unsurpassed with a new dimension of richness, a sound that is always full and projects its quality to the back of any concert hall.
I never thought that I could find an instrument better than my Prestige well I have! It is the new Besson
looks about the same, feels about the same
plays like an absolute dream! Without doubt, the best instrument I have ever played. Steven Mead
