I have a 1 year old Besson 983 Eb for sale. It includes a black cordura Reunion Blues gig bag and a Perantucci PT-65s mouthpiece. Here is the breakdown of prices if you were to buy this horn new from Brasswind, the cheapest place to find them.
$4695 - Besson 983 Eb in silver
I am asking $4300 + shipping
I am in one of my moods and want to try F for a while. Hurry up and buy this horn before I change my mind again.
The horn has a couple of dents in the bottom bow. They have no affect on the playability of the horn and could be easily removed by any repairman if appearance is of concern. Other than that the horn is in almost new condition. It could use a polishing, but I like the look of tarnish on silver myself ;) The gig bag is in new condition.
