180th Besson anniversary edition cornets at Band Supplies

You will need to be very quick if you want to get your hands on the ultimate cornet present for Christmas.

Besson
  The special 180th anniversary limited edition cornet is available at Band Supplies.

Band Supplies has a very limited number of the much sought after Besson 180 Anniversary limited edition cornets in stock — available to purchase in time to make for the ultimate brass band Christmas present.

The instruments have been a worldwide hit — with players eager to get their hands on an instrument that will not be reproduced or repeated — with just 180 models across the entire range.

Unique

As one of the world's leading brass retailers and specialists, Band Supplies has been able to source an exclusive quantity of the remaining Sovereign cornet stock — uniquely finished with the classic frosted silver plate body, bright silver plated tuning slides, finishing parts and inner bell.

The instruments come with a special limited edition case in the old Besson 'Royal Blue' colour, as well as a special 'classic' Denis Wick mouthpiece with gold plated rim and cup.

Certificate and insurance

The instrument also sports the renewed 'Besson London' brand logo engraved on the bell. This logo will be used on all production instruments from 2018 onwards.

Each instrument in the series will have a special engraving on the side of the bell to commemorate the 180th anniversary and also a provenance certificate with the instrument's unique limited edition issue number.
