In Their Own Words

"The Edwards T396-A is a fantastic instrument. I am very glad I made the purchase. It's a wonderful fixed-horn design that uses different alloys to bring out a warm and beautiful sound. The response is very fast.

"The clarity is excellent throughout all ranges -- by far the best I've played. As a new owner, I initially played this instrument without using the Pillars and was very happy. But now I've found several setups that allow the "true colors" of this horn to ring out. I enjoy this trombone immensely."
