"I wouldn't be working for Edwards if I didn't think their horns are the best on the market."

Joshua Brown joined the Edwards Team in 2001 after meeting Christan Griego at the International Trombone Festival. His first website redesign, launched in October 2002, better reflected the Edwards image of a leading brass manufacturer. Joshua also implemented an online shopping cart where, for the first time, customers could build a custom brass instrument online.

Joshua's role expanded in 2002 when he became the Getzen webmaster. Soon after, Edwards UK was launched -- a site that focuses on the European brass musician in general, and the British musician in particular. With the latest Edwards redesign, he has once again raised the bar.

In addition to the Edwards family of websites, Joshua is also the webmaster for the Griego Mouthpieces, Kagarice Brass Editions, OSU Trombones, and many others. He currently works as a designer/developer for He lives in Dallas, Texas, where he is a freelance bass trombonist.

In Their Own Words

Gerry Pagano

"I've been playing Edwards for a long time. I won my job in St. Louis on an Edwards in 1995! Lately, I've been working with Christan on the B502. In it, he has created a wonderful instrument. I prefer dependent valves, which I know puts me in the minority. I just like the response, and I'll sacrifice a few options in favor of the "straight pipe".

"With this horn, I've never been happier. It is centered, consistent through out all registers, and does it respond! The sound is clear - not spread out and "foggy". The B502-D sounds and feels like a trombone, not a slide tuba. The valves are extremely fast, and I never have to do anything, they just work! Paired with a good mouthpiece (see Griego Mouthpieces!), it just allows me to hear the music, and the horn is not in the way. And I happen to think its a beautiful horn as well. Smooth lines, well balanced, fits well in my hand, no extra support with some "rest bar" or other contraption. Just me, my horn, and some tunes! I will be playing this one for a long time... or until Christan makes another one that's even better!"
