I looking to buy a silver plate Boosey and Hawkes Sovereign Euphonium (you know the large bore one with the round Boosey Globe stamp?) Be willing to pay a fair price. I'm a student and I currently play on a Besson Sovereign medium bore, I find I just can't get the projection I want with it. Didn't some of the finest players speak of playing on these models with a Wick 4Al back in the day? Of course, the modern equivalent is the Prestige Euph with a Steven Mead 4. Is it true to say that these were some of the finest instruments ever made - from the orginal Edgeware factory? Hopefully someone out there has one lying in the attic, no longer used, which they wish to get rid of!!! I'd be willing to get some work done on it if necessary. Thanks.
