Artist Comments

"I have never played an instrument that projects so easily and with such consistency in every register, regardless of dynamic level. Edwards trombones are of such high quality, it's no surprise that they've become the standard of excellence."

Dr. Joshua L. Bynum is Associate Professor of Trombone at the University of Georgia and trombonist with the Georgia Brass Quintet. He is a founding member of Resonant Projection, a professional trombone quartet dedicated to promoting new and undiscovered works. In the summers, Bynum serves as trombone faculty for the Festival of Vale Veneto, in the Rio Grande de Sul region of Brazil.

Josh performs regularly as first-call substitute with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (including the entire 2015-16 season) and Charleston Symphony Orchestra. He also regularly performs with the Symphony Orchestra of Augusta, and is currently serving as principal trombonist with the Macon Symphony Orchestra.

In Their Own Words

Darren Kramer

"The Edwards Jazz Trombone is simply the best trombone I've ever played. I am NOT an equipment junky and I am not an impulse buyer, however, I visited the Edwards booth at the 2004 IAJE and ended up buying this horn on the spot! The consistency throughout the entire range of the horn is remarkable... every note feels the same! I also enjoy the response and tone flexibility - I am able to acheive a dark, lush tone on ballads as well as a full, biting tone on Funk, Jazz and Salsa when playing with my band DKO...all with minimal effort! I highly recommend this horn to any serious trombonist."
