Wisemann claim this is as good as the best Besson and are rumoured to use the same factory that Besson use in China. I was looking forward to trying this euph but sadly it was a big let down. Horrible playing position with a strangely low down leadpipe. Very weak and cheap feeling generally and massive shaking when played loud (and I didn't even play it that loud to feel it). Nice looking, but looks are very deceiving when it comes to Chinese euphoniums it seems! 2/10
