Bass Trombone Slides
Edwards bass trombones are available with either all nickel outer slide, or yellow brass outer tubes with nickel sleeves and end crook. Each slide carries different sound characteristics to allow you to change the color of your Edwards to your ideal sound. All slides come with three interchangeable leadpipes.
The B-STDN is the standard .562" bore bass trombone slide. This slide provides a player with greater flexibility in the upper register. It is most comparable to the Bach 50 slide. The B-STDN has an yellow brass outer slide with nickel sleeves and endcrook.
The B-STD-AN is the standard .562" bore all nickel bass trombone slide. The B-STD-AN has an all nickel outer slide without nickel sleeves. The all nickel slides are drawn to the same wall thicknesses as our yellow outer tube slides. This ensures forte volumes stay well in control by the player while giving a faster response and more core to the sound.
The B-DBN is a .562"/.578" dual bore slide. This slide adds width to the sound and blows freely in the low register. The B-DBN has a yellow brass outer slide with nickel sleeves and endcrook Three leadpipes aid the player in achieving the desired compression of the individual instrument.

In Their Own Words
"I've been playing Edwards for a long time. I won my job in St. Louis on an Edwards in 1995! Lately, I've been working with Christan on the B502. In it, he has created a wonderful instrument. I prefer dependent valves, which I know puts me in the minority. I just like the response, and I'll sacrifice a few options in favor of the "straight pipe".
"With this horn, I've never been happier. It is centered, consistent through out all registers, and does it respond! The sound is clear - not spread out and "foggy". The B502-D sounds and feels like a trombone, not a slide tuba. The valves are extremely fast, and I never have to do anything, they just work! Paired with a good mouthpiece (see Griego Mouthpieces!), it just allows me to hear the music, and the horn is not in the way. And I happen to think its a beautiful horn as well. Smooth lines, well balanced, fits well in my hand, no extra support with some "rest bar" or other contraption. Just me, my horn, and some tunes! I will be playing this one for a long time... or until Christan makes another one that's even better!"
