The Prestige 2050 tenor horn is still the market leader in tenor horn design. The addition of the main tuning slide trigger is just one of the superb new developments that makes this horn such a winner.
Recent modifications to the lead pipe and the ergonomics of the trigger position have ensured the Prestige will satisfy all its devotees.
Its luxuriant, opulent tone helps blend both sides of the brass band together.
This horn has an array of tonal possibilities, from the softest whispering pianissimo, through broad mezzo dynamics to the strongest fortissimos, never sacrificing tonal beauty and elegance.
The finish to the Prestige horn with its elegant gold trimmings set against bright silver plating is an added feature, meaning it looks as good as it sounds.
The Besson Prestige Tenor Horn has been designed to meet the demands of the modern day player, with all the qualities of the BE950 and much more.
The addition of a main slide trigger is a pioneering development which allows the player to be in complete control of intonation.
In addition, the Prestige tenor horn has been enhanced with a redesigned valve block, wider dimensions and a new leadpipe which provides a rich opulent tonal superiority.
