    My name is Al. I was a trumpet player up through 9th grade and switched to Euphonium 2 years ago (nearly 40 years later) to play with my sons. I am in a Seattle area community band and love it.

    Now my question: I have purchased a number of instruments to try besides the Euphonium including a marching trombone, Conn and King tromboniums, a Getzen Trombone and most recently within the last 6 months a new Besson Sovereign Baritone (BE 955) in Laquer that I have played a few times at home.

    What is the demand currently for the Sovereign Baritone? Is it likely Besson will return to the market?

    Hi Al, and :hi to tMP

    Its always good to see members signing up from the other side of the pond - I hope you enjoy tMP and have some good discussions here.

    As for Besson, well to be quite honest I don't know what will happen. There was a thread about the takeover by Buffet here which might be of interest to you. Also there are several members who work in the trade, so they might have a better picure than me. If you post a reply in that thread requesting an update (as not all members read the Introduce Yourself forum), I'm sure if someone knows something they will say so.
