6. Eb Tenor Horn – Geneva Cardinal – Profesional


The Geneva Cardinal range is a cumulative result of 24 years research and development bringing together the latest of innovations with the simple aim to produce pure luxury, using the finest of materials, and attention to detail only surpassed by our relentless quest for perfection in sound and intonation.

The venturi, featured on all the Geneva Cardinal lead pipes, is designed to allow the musician to instantly have much more sound, and an almost resistant free experience. This coupled with the ultimate mix of bespoke metals, ergonomic design whilst retaining the hand hammered bell has produced what many believe to be best in class or indeed an artisan with scale instrument range in a class of its own

Our Cardinal instruments are designed for those advanced and professional musicians that require the ultimate reliable professional instrument to ply their trade, the progressive intermediate musician who is ready to move to a fully professional instrument and any musician who wish to have best in class.

Evidenced by the growing number of globally recognised virtuosos now choosing to play Geneva Cardinal instruments in the UK, EU, USA, Japan, Australia etc., we strongly believe Geneva’s innovative approach has raised the quality in hand made brass musical instrument production to new levels. But you the customer will be the ultimate deciding factor so book your “Try Before You Buy’ and take the test

Each of the Geneva Cardinal instruments features decorative engraving that is hand crafted by gifted artisans, thus making your Cardinal instrument an absolutely unique work of art lasting a life time.

New since 2023 is the replacement of the piston tuning mechanism with a new lever designed in collaboration with Siobhan Bates of Black Dyke, bringing increased ergonomic stability when tuning those complex harmonics, and the improved 'Black Nickel Plating' resulting from a significant investment in the manufacturing production line.

"The Geneva Cardinal Tenor Horn is a beautiful instrument, both aesthetically and tonally. The valves are slick and effortless, making every aspect of the instrument first class."
