Artist Comments

"Edwards approach to customizing the horn to match the individual is truly the best for any professional or serious trumpet player. Moving to the Edwards trumpet is one of the best moves I have made in my career. I love playing on the horn. It provides great depth and color in the sound and an accurate center of pitch, especially in the upper register. The service from Edwards has been outstanding."

"Prior to playing the Edwards Trumpets, I had played many instruments trying to find the one that fit me. The flexibility of the Edwards Trumpet is just what I needed. The craftsmanship is excellent, and the process for fitting the instrumet to me was expertly done."
