‘I’m very happy with the new Cardinal Tenor Horn because it really helped me to improve my projection and sound, especially in the high range. The sound is fantas-tic, it’s rounder and very full. I can hear detail in the technical parts more clearly. The intonation is good and matches well in the band and to top it off, the cardinal looks fantastic too.‘
