Artist Comments

"I have owned an Edwards bass trombone for the past nine years. My B454 has helped me progress through my collegiate studies and into my profesional job with ease. Whether playing Haydn or cranking it out on Mahler, the variety of colors I'm able to produce makes it a joy to play."

In Their Own Words

"My custom Edwards trombone is the most consistent, resonant instrument I've ever played. Throughout the dynamic spectrum and across all ranges the sound is pure and the response is flawless. The pros at Edwards are very knowledgeable and they fit my trombone to my exact preferences. I whole-heartedly recommend Edwards instruments to anyone who is serious about reaching their full potential as a trombonist."
