The ever-popular Sovereign 950 is the classic model that has made it the most impressive horn design in generations. It's been the mainstay of horn manufacturing for decades with its characteristic tubing configuration that gives you both tone and response in equal measure.
This BE950-2 Model too has evolved as a result of the collaboration of highly skilled specialists, both technical and musical, all contributing their know-how and artistry. The choice of the Prestige or Sovereign horns is a choice the musician has to make based on what tonal colours they prefer and how the air flows though the instrument.
