Maker: BESSON International

Model: BE 701

Type: Compensating double in F/B flat or Bb/F

Bore/Throat: medium

Alloy: yellow brass

Valve compression: very good

Adjustable finger hook

Silver plated mouthpiece in very good condition.

Water key: conventional type, on the leadpipe

Visual / cosmetic condition: generally good, with some lacquer wear and a few tiny dings here and there.

Weight: 2.33 kg

Case: 'Soundwear' semi-rigid gig bag with backpack straps and several very useful pockets.

Further details: in good overall condition, this horn is a recommendable beginner instrument; also a definite upgrade from a ‘mini horn’/ ‘kinder horn’;  an ‘improver’ horn for e.g. a young player up to about Grades 7-8.

This rather lightweight horn plays 

beautifully over the whole range and is

an excellent example of its type. It has a

more free-blowing F side than most 

inexpensive compensators.
