Edwards Eb Trumpet

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

Just built our first five Eb trumpets. They’re in process in the buff room. After this they will be silver plated.

After they’re assembled we’ll get pictures of them and then you’ll be able to see them in the final state on the website.

Thanks to all that tried (purchased) and gave their input on the design and final product. It’s exciting to work with all of you and your input is greatly appreciated. Graham Ashton, Leonard Candelaria, William Takacs, and many players in the surrounding area (some not to be named due to other manufacturer endorsements) input was used and I am thankful to have these people as friends and collaborators.

We look forward to having this model added to the current Edwards line available Jan 1st 2009.

Regards,

Christan Griego

Edge-Braced Tenors Now the Standard

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

As we continue to gear up for the upcoming Alessi Tenor Trombone, I’ve had to make some tough decisions. The T350 has been our standard tenor model since our inception in 1989. However, since we added the T350-E to the catalog a number of years ago, T350 sales have decreased as more and more players have gravitated to Edge Braced valve sections. So as of now, the T350-E is now our standard Axial Flow valve tenor trombone.

We will still produce the T350 for those that want it, but these will only be made couple times a year. Delivery will be slower than the T350-E. There is no need to worry for those of you with a standard braced T350 on order. Current orders will be made to your specifications. By moving in this direction, we will free up valuable time in the production schedule for the new Alessi Model.

This does not affect our bass trombone models, so no worries to you breathers of the hot, slow air.

São Paulo Low Brass Pic

There are quite a few Edwards trombone sections in symphonies around the world. We recently received this photo, taken shortly after the São Paulo Symphony performed the Bartok Concerto for Orchestra. Thanks to Alex for providing the pic!

Alessi Plays Something Old on Something New

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

As many of you already know, Edwards has been working closely with Joe Alessi on a new tenor trombone the past couple of years. We are making great progress and anticipate this horn being available for sale in late 2008 or early 2009. With all the buzz this instrument is receiving, we thought it would be nice to provide you with a sample of the color we are achieving with this project. Enjoy.

Edwards Offers Wood

Monday, January 28th, 2008

In our constant pursuit of perfection, we are offering another option for our trombone customers. Three wood trigger dowels are now available on our valved trombone models. This upgrade is only $20.

Thanks go to Armin Clobes and Edwards Associate Michael Clobes for “triggering” the project.

If you have a horn on order and want to switch from the plastic delrin please contact us immediately. If you have an existing instrument you can remove your delrin trigger and replace it with wood as well. We can talk you through this procedure on the phone.
