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

"Edwards trombones surpass any other instrument on the market today. I have challenged this perception time and time again by shopping all other brands until I find the best of the best and then I compare this to Edwards. Every time I have chosen an Edwards above all others for its superior tone quality and response. The Edwards instruments make my job as a trombonist easy!

"The quality service from Christian Griego and the Edwards staff allow any trombonist to customize the instrument to fit his own playing style and to own an instrument that feels and sounds like it was made for him."
