Artist Comments

"Great instruments are the result of their maker's purpose, understanding of their craft, and honest relationships with their clientele. Through blood, sweat, and ears, the folks at Edwards Instruments embody this philosophy, and helped build my beloved instrument. Unlike other trombones, the Edwards T350-HB allows for timbral and color shifts throughout the dynamic range, while having a security and ease of production in all registers - found in no other I've ever played. Whether playing second trombone in the Boston Symphony or first trombone of the Boston Pops, it's hard to imagine an instrument that is as versatile as this one."

Stephen Lange has been a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra since the fall of 2010, and previously held the Associate Principal Trombone Chair of the Saint Louis Symphony for ten years.

In Their Own Words

Adam Johnson

"My custom Edwards trombone is the most consistent, resonant instrument I've ever played. Throughout the dynamic spectrum and across all ranges the sound is pure and the response is flawless. The pros at Edwards are very knowledgeable and they fit my trombone to my exact preferences. I whole-heartedly recommend Edwards instruments to anyone who is serious about reaching their full potential as a trombonist."
