Artist Comments

"The Edwards trombone is unrivaled. Playing an Edwards trombone provides the flexibility I need in ever changing musical demands. I am able to shift tone colors and timbres with great flexibility, all while producing a rich and clear tone in every range. Edwards instruments are made with outstanding quality and customer service to match. Why play anything else, when you can play an Edwards."

In Their Own Words

"I'm impressed with the quality of the Edwards products, and by the consistency of tone through the different registers that seems to be a hallmark of their trombones. The modular concept allows you to customize a horn to your specific needs, and their consistency of intonation and response makes it easy to change to another of their horns for another musical genre. These horns hold up to the loudest playing, and speak easily in the softest applications."
