    serial # 91427


    A very little bit of Besson history


    The Besson instruments of the early 20th century were the first truly modern trumpets and flugelhorns. The innovations in leadpipe design, bell shape, and wrap resulted in a far superior instrument to the instruments of the day. Bach trumpets were inspired (or copied) from early Besson trumpets, and most modern trumpets closely follow the same pattern. The Besson Brevete was a very popular choice for generations of Jazz trumpeters, and was played at various times by artists like Miles Davis, Rafael Mendez (the Olds Mendez was basically a copy of his old Brevete), Lee Morgan, and Fats Navarro.
