"The staff at Edwards helped me take the guessing game out of finding the horn for me. Being able to try different components of a trumpet and craft a horn that truly meets the sound I could hear in my head is priceless."

"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."
