Artist Comments

"Since discovering the T350, I have been amazed with its consistency of sound, response, and resistance combined with the amount of control it provides me in regard to timbre and dynamic contrast. This trombone allows me to play the most delicate soloistic passages to the heaviest orchestral literature with equal ease. The Edwards T350 is by far the finest and most versatile instrument that I've ever played."

In Their Own Words

"Personally, I want a trombone that doesn't get in the way and allows me to be me. With my Edwards, I can create whatever sound or color I need on a given day. In the opera, it allows me to be strong but nimble while in chamber settings giving the ability to execute virtuostic passages musically without sounding labored."
