In Their Own Words

Jeff Perkins

"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."
