    Does anybody have a list of common lookalike names? ie Boosey & Hawkens, stratomaster, or Teacher Approved?
    I'm looking at a Besson & Co.Cornet on ebay I thought the name was F. Besson. Is this a soundalike?:dontknow:

    I hate that. Bolex instead of Rolex, and so on. And it fools lots of people, too.

    And Evilbay's called that for a reason.

    Ancient genuine French Besson horns were stamped "F. Besson" with the address "rue d'Angouleme, Paris". "F" being the initial of Mr. Besson's first name.

    What is the listing number on that one. I don't see one like that on ebay now.
    There are some English Besson cornets on there now that have different inscriptions from the French made, rarer models, including a very nice 2-20.
    Many Besson's have been made in India, I believe, during recent years, and other places.
