No we do not wear sweaters in August in Wisconsin.

Alessi Model Demo

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Mike Dugan and Christan Griego recently got together in the Pro Stop to demonstrate the Harmonic Bridge and Pillars on the Alessi horn. The audio is actually quite good, so you should be able to hear the differences in tone as Christan adjusts Mike’s setup. These videos can also be viewed on the T396-A product page.

Eastern Trombone Workshop

Friday, March 20th, 2009

The ETW is one of the best trombone gatherings around, not just because it’s free, but because the US Army has a knack for getting so many talented artists to perform. If you can’t make it to Ft. Myer, VA, fear not. The US Army also streams the concerts live:

You’ll notice the Alessi horn used as the backdrop for the media player.

Speaking of the Alessi model, Ron and Martin McCain had a line waiting to play the T396-A for much of the day today. Christan decided to help out, so he bought a ticket tonight. His wakeup call is 2:30 AM, so go easy on him if you visit the booth on Saturday. He may be a little loopy.

TMEA & Edwards 2009

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

Another year has come & gone and most new years resolutions are already broken. Well my New Years resolution was to complete the Alessi model and it has come true. We have started production and the first few are now in the buffing department.

There are a few small details that will be added as we go along but the overall instrument is completed and we will have two of these at the upcoming TMEA in San Antonio Texas show for you to try. Please allow some time so you can try out our patent pending technology that we are excited about.

The dates are February 12-14. You can find more information here.

See you soon,

Midwest Reminder: Alessi Model Unveiling

Tuesday, December 9th, 2008

Well, I’m sitting here and thinking, “what have I forgotten to do?”. The horn has been tested and re-tested (and tested again) in as many configurations as we could think of. Now it’s time to get the Alessi Model in our customers’ hands. You can be one of the first to try it at the Midwest Clinic next week. Details are in the post below. Come to the booth early to get your invitation. We hope to see you there!

Alessi and the T396-A at Midwest

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Edwards will be at the Midwest Convention in Chicago December 17-19 displaying our regular assortment of trombones and trumpets. After much testing and input from players around the country, we’ll be showing our new Eb trumpet, as well.

Trombone players will also be able to play a new horn — the Alessi Model. But there’s a catch. You won’t find the T396-A in the exhibits hall. Instead, interested trombonists need to come to the booth to receive an invitation to our top secret location where you’ll find the horn and quite possibly Joe Alessi himself.

Okay, Joe will be there and so will I. We are planning on doing two to three sessions a day. Each session will begin with a 15 minute introduction, followed by a Q&A and time for you to try the horn. Please bring your own mouthpiece.

Space at these private sessions is limited, so be sure to stop by the Edwards booth early to pick up an invite. We have tentatively scheduled two sessions on the 17th and three sessions on the 18th & 19th.

See you there.

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.
