As mentioned in my other topic, I need to replace Bessie, my baby E Flat. Peter suggested starting a new topic, which should be a good idea as I have searched this place and it's never been discussed principally. This way, it's always here should someone need to know later. So... Bessie was a Besson, recommended to me by my eupho playing teacher. Should I keep looking for Bessons? Which one?? Should I look elsewhere? I don't mind the Hirschbrunners, although they appear a tad hard to find in Australia!! Thoughts people?? I'll help...insurance is paying, so let's not hold back!!
