NOT for sale

Postby bloke » Sun Jan 07, 2018 6:18 pm

I mentioned this instrument in passing a few weeks ago.
I ended up selling it locally (about as local as "folks who live out in the boonies" can be...they live about two hours away) to a kid who is really excited about it...

...but here is a picture, anyway.
You don't see these old satin-silver Besson euphoniums too often, anymore...and I dolled it up the best I could.

OK...
They're here, and he's playing it.
Wow...The kid has an 80's hair style (like the picture below, except even poofier).
...so are these coming back in style...?? :shock:

Great instrument. I have the exact same one just in lacquer. Great players, intonation can be a challenge.
