Alto Trombone Slides

Alto Trombone Slide Edwards trombones are available with either the standard weight or an optional heavier slide (specified by "N"). All slides come with three interchangeable leadpipes.

The A65-1 is the standard-weight .500 bore slide. Quick in response, the A65-1 blows freely in all registers. A lighter tone can be achieved with this slide in comparison to the A65-1N.

The A265-1N is the heavier-weight slide. It has nickel outer tubes and a yellow brass end crook. The A65-1N provides players with a centered sound that slots "tighter" than the lightweight slide. Many players perceive the sound of the nickel slide to be darker than the A65-1.

In Their Own Words

David Perkel

"I have been playing Edwards trombones in orchestras, solo recitals, chamber ensembles, jazz ensembles, and commercial settings for almost twenty years. These instruments allow me to get the sound I desire, are free-blowing, and they have such amazing evenness in all registers. They are, without a doubt, the best trombones I have ever played. Working with Christan to find the best orchestral and jazz horns for me has always been a fantastic experience! He is extremely knowledgeable about each model and has always helped select the horns that suited me best."
