The Besson 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 rigorously play-tested and checked at the factory by a renowned professional soloist for sound, response and finish.

The BE955 Besson Sovereign Baritone has an easy response and valve action, making it a comfortable, free-blowing instrument. The larger bell of the 955 allows for improved projection and clarity of sound in the back of the hall. This instrument also features a 3 valve compensating system for improved low register and intonation. Besson has been known the world over for it’s Sovereign line of low brass instruments. A “must have” for brass band work. These are the true professional’s choice for the needs of a brass band.
