In Their Own Words

Steve Wiest

"The Excalibur version of the T302 is simply the best jazz trombone that I've ever played! It has a wonderfully warm tone, but is capable of cutting right across an entire big band when necessary.

"Add to that an overtone series that slots beautifully and you get what I believe to be the best jazz trombone on the market!"
