In Their Own Words

Phil Clevinger

"From the moment I picked this horn up, I knew great things were in store. The clarity and range are unlike anything I've ever played. I have never had a horn that tests me like this one. After I've given 100% of myself at a performance, this trombone seems to say, "is that all you've got?" There are endless miles of road with this Edwards Trombone, and I intend to let this horn bring me the whole way."
