In Their Own Words

Brian Allen

"I've been blessed with this instrument for several years and I m still discovering new things about it everyday. With this horn, I'm limited only by my own imagination and technical shortcomings. I feel like anything is possible. It inspires me to take chances and go for whatever I m hearing, no matter how extreme. I couldn t ask for a better vessel through which to communicate.

"Thanks to Christan, Ron and Cathy and all of the other wonderful people at Edwards for helping me realize my dreams."
