In Their Own Words

David Perkel

"I have been playing Edwards trombones in orchestras, solo recitals, chamber ensembles, jazz ensembles, and commercial settings for almost twenty years. These instruments allow me to get the sound I desire, are free-blowing, and they have such amazing evenness in all registers. They are, without a doubt, the best trombones I have ever played. Working with Christan to find the best orchestral and jazz horns for me has always been a fantastic experience! He is extremely knowledgeable about each model and has always helped select the horns that suited me best."
