In Their Own Words

Gerry Pagano

"I've been playing Edwards for a long time. I won my job in St. Louis on an Edwards in 1995! Lately, I've been working with Christan on the B502. In it, he has created a wonderful instrument. I prefer dependent valves, which I know puts me in the minority. I just like the response, and I'll sacrifice a few options in favor of the "straight pipe".

"With this horn, I've never been happier. It is centered, consistent through out all registers, and does it respond! The sound is clear - not spread out and "foggy". The B502-D sounds and feels like a trombone, not a slide tuba. The valves are extremely fast, and I never have to do anything, they just work! Paired with a good mouthpiece (see Griego Mouthpieces!), it just allows me to hear the music, and the horn is not in the way. And I happen to think its a beautiful horn as well. Smooth lines, well balanced, fits well in my hand, no extra support with some "rest bar" or other contraption. Just me, my horn, and some tunes! I will be playing this one for a long time... or until Christan makes another one that's even better!"
