Tim Barrett of Besson said “ We are delighted to be able to help promote brass playing through a close association with Fodens and  look forward to a long and fruitful relationship."


Andy Rolfe from Fodens commented “2009 has been a very successful year upto now for the band and we are extremely pleased to announce the beginning of a promising relationship with Besson. Being associated with Besson will enable the band to perform using top quality instruments at contests, concerts and the many masterclasses that are planned.”


For any conductor and every audience, Foden’s Band is a musical Magic Carpet. It continually takes the listener to places that few other ensembles rarely even approach Howard Snell
