Has anyone tried the new Geneva tenor horn yet? And what did you think? Tuning, values, sound, ease of blowing...
I had a quick go on one at a trade stand and I must admit I did find it very free blowing with good intonation and a nice warm sound. But I guess 10mins at a trade stand is not the best test, so I'm going to go up to the factory after the Areas to try a few out - but I would be interested if anyone else has tried one/bought one recently and can compare it to one of the other leading horn makes out there.
I know Scott Bennett (Faireys) is playing one (helped design it perhaps??) and was really pleased with it, but does anyone know any other top players that play one or considering one yet?
I'm blowing a Wilson at the moment and really like it's sound, bore size and general feel of it, but there are some tuning issues on this early model (not sure if the newer models are better?), so i'm tempted to splash out on something new if it really is better.
