Geneva opens its doors to new retailers.

Geneva Instruments


Such is the growing popularity of Geneva Instruments, that the company has decided to open the brand up through the major brass retailers in the UK.

Bigger and better

Geneva is constantly designing ways that they can help our customers, so the move gives them a bigger and better chance to get their hands on our brilliant instruments.

Geneva does not just want to supply you with an instrument — we want to keep you as a customer for life.

Not only do we offer the very best instruments but they all come with a Lifetime Guarantee and the servicing is FREE.

Looking to change

Anyone looking at changing their instrument, should really take a look at the Geneva range.
