    Had the pleasure of trying the new Besson Sovereign cornet today. I was wondering if anyone has got or tried one?
    I found it a very focused instrument & much more solid than Besson of recent times!:sup
    Besson is now owned by Buffet & the cornet is made in France, but is this anything to do with the company who made the French Besson trumpet?

    I compared the Sovereign to a Xeno but felt the it ran out of steam a bit & produced a thin sound in comparison.(both ML bore):oops:
    The build quality of the xeno I tried wasn't brilliant, especially the rattle on the 1st valve trigger! I have xeno trumpet so expected more from the Yammy, or did i just get a duffer??

    Any comments or suggestions....
