In Their Own Words

Brian Diehl

"I choose to play Edwards for the even control throughout the horn's entire range. Just as we as musicians are constantly evolving, so too are the Edwards trombone designs. Case in point- my old Edwards valve (which had never given me ANY problems) began showing signs of old age, so I took a look at a new one. I couldn't believe how much more free-blowing and smooth it was!

"When playing in a section of Edwards instruments, blend is immediate and the sound is gorgeous. Much of the work in section playing is removed by the nature of the full, round sounds of the Edwards trombones.

"Additionally, I would recommend playing Edwards trombones for any audition that should come up. The reason is simple- I want to eliminate as many possible hindrances (intonation difficulties, uneven sound) and concentrate on playing each round. The Edwards design leaves you free to promote your music!"
