"I have played many horns as a professional trumpet player - including horns of fellow players - and I feel that the Gen X is the best horn out there today. From the first 3 or 4 notes I played on it, I knew something was different about this horn. It was not only the ease of playing it but the sound is... just better. This horn makes it fun to play trumpet. I play a variety of styles, including lead trumpet, cornet solos, concertos, jazz, etc., and the Gen X allows me to do it all on one horn and have a great time doing it."

In Their Own Words
"As a trumpet player my whole life, it is imperative that my horn convey the message I want it to; and because we do music as a full-time ministry that message needs to be crystal clear. It is the power of the Holy Spirit combined with one of the best horns I have ever had the priveledge to play that defines who I am as a player...from ministering inside some of the largest churches in our nation to the smallest of congregations, the power and beauty of this horn has been a true blessing.
"Thank-you everyone at the Edwards originization for your continued dedication to craftsmenship and service. May God bless all you do."
