    Geneva Euphonium

    Has anyone tried it? What is your opinions on it? I personally liked it, but it couldn't sing quite like the sovereign or was in tune on the level of the Neo

    UK brass bands really seem to like the Geneva horns. I don't like how they market it to seem like its built in the UK. They are in fact built in the Czech Republic. This does not seem to make it a bad horn, it just proves that you can have good horn made in whatever country, as long as the QC and original design are good. But a bit more transparency would be nice.

    EDIT: I forgot, before some of the horns were made in the UK. They are mostly made in the Czech Rep. now.

    Yeah, also adding this.
    I tried it out with a sovereign next to it (Also tried the Sovereign) and it was pretty much the exact same thing in terms of design. Only difference was that it seemed like the Geneva also 'borrowed' some ideas from the Prestige. But it truly played well, and if you asked me better than the Sovereign. Only thing was that using the trigger for the tuning slide hurt my hand. Maybe because I'm not used to it though, and there also was the piece of plastic to protect the tuning slide, which felt a bit weird when playing.
