Geneva has announced the launch of the first addition to their new ‘Academy’ range of intermediate brass instruments.
The ‘Mentor’ Bb cornet has been specifically designed to incorporate the essential requirements crucial on an instrument for developing players keen to take their musical capabilities to the next level - helped by Geneva’s renowned standards of craftsmanship.
It has been designed and built to assist in bridging the gap between the pro-level product and the existing intermediate/higher-end student level brass instrument ranges.
The ‘Academy’ range is manufactured in the same factory, by the same instrument technicians and to the same traditional brass instrument methods and techniques as Geneva’s market leading professional level ‘Symphony’ series.
Those same uncompromising levels of craftsmanship are evident in the new ‘Academy’ series, with the cornet following the same lineage of Geneva instruments that produce a simply wonderful tonal quality and superb intonation characteristics.
Responsive, flexible and easy to blow in all registers, the ‘Mentor’ also gives players both young and old an exceptionally comfortable instrument on which to perform.
Geneva Instruments Founder and head instruments designer, Tim Oldroyd told 4BR: “The ‘Academy’ series unquestionably meets the high level performance requirements of the advanced college or conservatoire-level brass player at a very attainable price point, as well as rivaling many existing pro-level ranges.”
