‘Having tried the Oldroyd Cardinal Cornet with my son Vincent, I have to say I have never played a better cornet, it will perform brilliantly even for the most demanding of players. Apart from the playing quality, the engraving is expertly done and is pleasing to the eye, and being unique on every instrument just adds to the whole experience. I am delighted to be a representative of such a wonderful cornet.‘
