Is there a way to find out how old my Sovereign tenor horn is from the serial number?
you can look it up on the serial number thing on the besson website, although it hardly ever actually works! heres the link http://www.besson.com/SerialNumber.asp
When the automated version doesn't work (I was told they'd lost lots of the data from the web engine!), you can drop customer services @ Besson an email and they look it up on the origian (paper!) copy of the information and mail you back promptly.
Your right. It doesn't work. If I enter just the serial number it says Not found. If I enter anything else I just get an erreor page. Thanks anyway.
I know there is a way of dating a Shilke Sop.. Using their website. Serial numbers between 10000 and 20000 (or something like) means it was made between 1980-90.
Mine is 17000 so I gues its around 1987ish.
I reacon that Besson will have a similar structure... just gotta find it!
Is it an old Besson/Boosey & Hawkes, or a newer one?
If an older one, I have a serial numbers listing somewhere and it might be on there - if more recent, best of luck with Besson
It's a newish? Besson Sovereign Tenor Horn.
