Pros: Plays loudly, cheap, easy for ANY one to play meant for marching band,
Cons: Not for light, classical music

 
One, day, Went to the pawn shop, saw this. But it didn't have the 1st slide saddle or anything. The slides were glued shut. I soaked it in mystery oil for about 4 to 5 days and it popped out. It works! MENT FOR MARCHING BAND!!!!! It is very light and plays loudly! MARCHING BAND QUALITY

Pros: Fit, finish,tone quality, slotting,ease of playing
Cons: Tight 3rd slide

 
Have had it a few months. Plays better than most student horns and a great value. It is fine for the concert band and swing band that I play in. I am using some Bach heavy valve caps on it now. Not as bright as an Olds Ambassador or Reynolds Medalist.

Pros: High quality construction and finish, good solid student horn
Cons: clanky valves

 
Good student horn, easy to play, decent intonation. If you can find one of the Kanstul USA built Bessons they are very well made. Fast valves, although somewhat clanky. Nice big five inch bell for big sound and lots of brighness, if that's what you want. Not a subtle sound

Pros: Kanstul builds excellent quality at all price points
Cons: No thumb hook on first slide

 
Kanstul quality is absolutely great at all levels and this 609 Besson is no exception. It plays in tune so well you hardly miss the thumb hook. It has a very sweet sound. If you go just by sound, you would say this trumpet blends well with trumpets that cost three times as much.
