    I just purchased a B flat, Baritone … Front facing removable Bell. Serial number 216515. It is so smooth, with a very rich sound. Besson star Brevette bottom of second valve, Made in England. I am actually a Trombone Player, and learning to play this at Home. I love it, and would appreciate any info on this instrument. You have a beautiful collection.
