Bass SlidesBass 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

Brian Diehl

"I choose to play Edwards for the even control throughout the horn's entire range. Just as we as musicians are constantly evolving, so too are the Edwards trombone designs. Case in point- my old Edwards valve (which had never given me ANY problems) began showing signs of old age, so I took a look at a new one. I couldn't believe how much more free-blowing and smooth it was!

"When playing in a section of Edwards instruments, blend is immediate and the sound is gorgeous. Much of the work in section playing is removed by the nature of the full, round sounds of the Edwards trombones.

"Additionally, I would recommend playing Edwards trombones for any audition that should come up. The reason is simple- I want to eliminate as many possible hindrances (intonation difficulties, uneven sound) and concentrate on playing each round. The Edwards design leaves you free to promote your music!"
