Information from the Geneva Instruments website:
The Geneva Rod Franks trumpet was designed for Rod Franks, Principal Trumpet of the London Symphony Orchestra. Rod brought his expertise, experience and his awareness of other trumpet models to fulfill the essential elements to produce, what Rod himself feels, is the most versatile trumpet for the professional market.
The Geneva Rod Franks trumpet features a yellow brass lead-pipe, incorporating a standard configuration with an even taper from entry point, producing unparalleled tuning, control and response.
The Rod Franks trumpet also features a 4 ¾” yellow brass bell which creates an even tone and a clear sound throughout the trumpet range. The response from the yellow brass bell enables the player the flexibility to determine their own musical identity for a definitive performance.
