I currently play on a Besson compensating 4-valve BBb (3 top/4th on side) in my army band. This horn is nickel-plated and is about 7-8 years old, and I've noticed that I can do on this horn better than when I played on a Miraphone 186-4U. My tone is better, and the upper register is clean. Overall I think the Besson is better than that Miraphone, but the Miraphone did have some qualities that the Besson doesn't. Any opinions on this Besson or any other compensating tubas?
