In Their Own Words

Timothy Myers

I think the key word about the Edwards T396-A is flexibility. I ask this horn to do a lot of different things, and it obliges me consistently. I think it gets me closer to the sound in my head than any other horn I have played. It has an even response and a singing sound in all registers, at all dynamics. When I play the high parts with the Trombones of the Saint Louis Symphony, the horn responds easily and doesn't feel stuffy. For solo work, the T396-A lets me get lots of different colors. In the orchestra, the horn is blending when I need it to be, and focused and projecting when the trombone sound needs to be prominent. The fine-tuning afforded by the Harmonic Bridge makes this horn truly customized to me. I've never played a better horn.
