Our story

At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the manufacture of band instruments was little more than a cottage industry. Individual craftsmen made such items as key bugles, serpents and ophiecleides, most of them from materials other than brass.

At that time a business was founded in Paris and subsequently established in London, which was destined to become famous throughout the world for the excellence of its brass instruments and whose name, so easily pronounced in all tongues, became synonymous with its product.

This famous name is Besson.


In 1837, Gustave August Besson (1820-1874),  a genious in acoustic science created the Besson brand in Paris. His new cornet revolutionized the instrument and continues to influence the story of sound.

His instruments  became famous in Europe and he has been accredited over fifty inventions.
