In Their Own Words

Leonard Candelaria

"The construction and the workmanship of Edwards trumpets are outstanding. The valves, made by parent company Getzen, are superb and are generally regarded as the smoothest in the industry. The modular design of the Gen II and Gen X trumpets allows the player to evaluate different individual components (bells, leadpipes, and valve groups of both bore sizes, .460" and .462" inches) without changing the entire instrument. This helps eliminate much of the confusion players encounter when trying to assess the subtle differences in playing qualities between components and makes it truly possible for one to custom fit a trumpet to their particular needs."
