Greetings! For your consideration I offer this Besson & Co. (London) B-flat flügelhorn, marked on the bell ''LP / CLASS / A / 50 Medals of Honour / (FB logo) / Besson & Co. / ''Prototype'' / 198 Euston Road / London / England / (star)''. The 2nd valve casing is stamped ''Besson & Co / (star) / Brevete'' in an oval, with serial # 123.793 stamped below that. The serial indicates production in 1930. Construction is 100% yellow brass, raw and unlacquered. It plays at modern Low Pitch, A=440. The receiver takes a standard flügelhorn shank; a Bach 7CFL flügel mouthpiece fits perfectly. Bore size measured at the 2nd valve crook is .405''. The bell has a visible toothed seam, with a triangular gusset, typical European construction of the era.


CONDITION: I have cleaned and lubed this instrument, and given it a light polish. There is still a little dark patina in the crevices; I think it gives the horn a nice ''vinta
