In Their Own Words

John McGinness

"My Edwards trombone is a joy to play in every situation. It allows me to create the sounds I want to make and doesn't get in the way of the music I'm trying to create. It allows the flexibility I need in solo and chamber settings but has the breadth of sound necessary to contribute in the orchestra.

"The bottom line is that whether I'm playing ballads to myself or launching an assault on the viola section, my Edwards trombone just works."
