4BR British Open Competition: Win a Besson cornet

Make sure you enter our British Open as we have a fantastic prize on offer for those with a bit of a 'Dynasty' crystal ball to look into...

Besson Standard
  The Besson Standard cornet is up for grabs

Thanks to our friends at Besson and Band Supplies, 4BR has a fantastic British Open prize on offer this weekend with a Besson 120 New Standard student model cornet in silver worth nearly £350, up for grabs.

Top 3

And all you have to do is give us your choice of potential top three podium finishers at Symphony Hall on Saturday.

The Besson 120 New Standard student Bb cornet is designed in the classic British tradition and with the student in mind.

It is a full-featured instrument with a sound patterned after the old Sovereign medium large model, which gives the student an advantage in obtaining the classic cornet sound. It keeps with the quality and tradition to be expected from a Besson instrument.

How to enter

All you have to do is to give us your projected podium finishers in 1,2,3 order for this year's British Open Championship contest at Symphony Hall on Saturday 7th September.
