The Geneva Platypus was hand made, it has great engraving on the bell. i find it is great for jazz bands if that is what you want to do... I feel, having tried all the big names e.g. bach and all that... this has to be one of the best looking and best sounding trumpets around.... thank you for reading… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/07/2008 by FeistyFlugel (1 review written)

The Geneva Platypus has a rich dark sound not at all stuffy like some. Finish and bespoke-ness(if that's a word). A beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Handbuilt and customisable - takes time to build. Not really a bad point, I'm just impatient. The best flug i've ever, ever played. inc Bach, Courtois, Yam.etc… Read Full Review

“I took delivery of the Geneva Platypus trumpet five...”

Written on: 06/10/2006 by london tpt (1 review written)

I took delivery of the Geneva Platypus trumpet five weeks ago, and having tried Bach's, Xeno's, Eclipse and Smith Watkins, I heard the name Geneva coming up in conversation time and time again without a bad word to be said for them, so I went to see them, and the service was first class. This man is a trumpet making genius! If he can't give you what you want in a horn then no one can.

Go and get one! This is the best trumpet I have ever played… Read Full Review

Minimmusic's Response to 262340_london tpt's Review

Written on: 26/01/2007

I have just taken delivery of a New Geneva Vioti Trumpet today. As you have said, Tim Oldroyd is a great trumpet maker. This is the best trumpet that I have ever blown in my 30 years as a pro trumpet player and teacher. I had the Vioti trumpet made to my exact specification, with a solid nickel silver bell, with superb engraving and gold plating on the tuning slides. The craftsmanship is second-to-none, and it blows like no other trumpet that I know of.

<br>Thanks Tim...
