Progressing Through The Grades
The Besson BE111 New Standard trumpet has lots of professional features at an entry-level price. The reverse lead pipe creates a much freer blowing experience with good intonation and tone. High register playing will also become easier due to this leadpipe design - a must-have for students progressing through music exams.
To ensure tuning is never an issue, the New Standard trumpet features finger rings on the first and third valve slide for quick and easy corrections. Even students with small hands can achieve this as Besson has taken special care to make the valve block slightly smaller.
Built To Last
You can be sure the New Standard BE111 trumpet can withstand the chaotic lifestyle of school bands.
The bell is hand-made from a single piece of quality yellow brass which helps with projection and also keeps the weight down. The majority of brass players favour yellow brass because it can be played in jazz bands, brass bands, and orchestras due to the versatile tone.
All of the valves slides will stay fast and smooth as a result of the nickel-silver construction which is very resistant to corrosion. Although not maintenance free, the BE111 only requires low upkeep to keep it working. Once the trumpet has been constructed, a layer of clear lacquer is applied to keep your new horn looking its best.
Setting the New Standard
The New Standard series of instruments from Besson are designed to redefine the student market. These instruments have been created to provide great sounding beginner instruments that are also reliable, practical, and hard wearing. Thanks to the very desirable price, the New Standard series of instruments have become popular among teachers, and are regularly bought for training bands and educational authorities.
Everything You Need
To ensure that you have the best possible experience, Besson have included everything you need to get started. To keep the trumpet safe, the BE111 comes with a lightweight case that offers strong protection. On the outside of the case, you will find two robust handles and a large pocket which is perfect for sheet music. There is even reflective piping around the edge of the case and across the pocket to ensure that you can always be seen when commuting. Around the back of the case, you will find the integrated padded backpack straps - perfect for walking to school. And when not in use, these can easily be zipped away.
Moulded especially for the BE111, the New Standard trumpet fits perfectly inside the case. For an extra touch of protection, the inside is lined with a soft touch material that won't scratch your horn. At the front of the case, you will find a large compartment which is ideal for storing all of your accessories. There is also a dedicated compartment to store the included mouthpiece.
