TRUMPETS

POST COUPON TO

Let me know more about Besson Trumpets and the Celebrities who play them—I’m interested.

Name Address

BESSON MUSICRAFT, 12, ARCHER ST., LONDON, W.l. ger 5„9

Some weeks ago a trumpeter friend drew my attention to a competitor’s advertisement, remarking that he always thought that celebrity so and so was a staunch Besson enthusiast. “ My dear good Sir,” said I, ‘‘he still is, but human nature being what it is, some persons fall for certain forms of sales propaganda, their resistance to this being weaker than their inward opinion of Besson merit. He has succumbed, but if he is the true artist I know him to be this is not good-bye—he has too great a reputation at stake.” I was therefore not at all surprised when celebrity so and so dropped in to see me the other day and frankly admitted that he had been persuaded into changing against his better judgment. “ But,” he said, the comparison of instruments has done me the world of good—I know once and for all time which is THE trumpet.” It evidently had and he evidently did, for he departed some time later with a brand new silverplated Besson ‘ ‘ International ” in its new fitted case and I handed our cashier a cheque for £22 10 0—THE FULL RETAIL CASH PRICE !
