Try before you Buy

"Try Before You Buy"


We are proud to announce the introduction of our all new 2023 models for you to Try before you Buy:

Cardinal - with major improvements to our Bb Cornet, Eb Horn, Bb Baritone tuning levers the Cardinal continues to be the choice of many of the worlds top Brass Band players.

Heritage - with the introduction of a Bb Euphonium and EEb Tuba (Formerly the most popular models from our discontinued 'Geneva Symphony' range) they provide the perfect match to the exceptional Heritage Bb Cornet designed in 2021 in collaboration with Professor Phillip McCann and Geneva.

Signature - Our wholly new range introduced in late 2023 to provide a lighter instrument range, using the same handmade techniques for our premium ranges, without compromise to intonation or sound. Particularly popular with young and old musicians who have trouble with the stamina required for sustained playing whether standing or sitting. Also a popular choice for those in military marching bands including the British Army.

These latest innovations are a result of our commitment for continuous improvement of the end quality of our UK finished instruments and, the exponential growth into a global supplier since Geneva’s inception in 2000.

Our growing Global reputation for quality is no better highlighted than The Black Dyke Band's decision in 2020 to purchase, exclusively play, promote and provide individual expertise and input to the continuous research and development of Geneva Brass instruments.

Finding the Perfect Match

The key for any musicians search for their next instrument is the ability to have the confidence the model they are buying is right for them in sound feel and ergonomics.

Our research and instinct tell us that a significant number of Bands and their members find it increasingly important to ‘Try before they buy’ their next generation of Brass Instruments. .

To that end we have incepted a “Try before you buy Scheme”. The scheme provides a door-to-door service to a musicians home, rehearsal venue, school/college or an appointment at a Geneva Bandroom venue; enabling musicians of all standards to try out a Geneva instrument in an environment of their choice.
