In Their Own Words

Darren Kramer

"The Edwards Jazz Trombone is simply the best trombone I've ever played. I am NOT an equipment junky and I am not an impulse buyer, however, I visited the Edwards booth at the 2004 IAJE and ended up buying this horn on the spot! The consistency throughout the entire range of the horn is remarkable... every note feels the same! I also enjoy the response and tone flexibility - I am able to acheive a dark, lush tone on ballads as well as a full, biting tone on Funk, Jazz and Salsa when playing with my band DKO...all with minimal effort! I highly recommend this horn to any serious trombonist."
