Treatments

Heat Treated
Heat treating a bell is a softening process. This bell is treated in specific areas that will encourage more overtones with projection. Heat treated bells "slot" slightly less than a tempered bell and create higher overtones at louder volumes.
Annealed
Annealing is also a softening process that encompasses the entire bell. An annealed bell offers a smooth blow with a slightly darker tone. Articulations are slower with the "slot" being wider.
Tempered
Tempered bells offer no heat treatments. This bell creates clear focused tone with medium to fast response. This bell "slot" well with less room for adjustment.

In Their Own Words

Ronnie Ingle

"My recent change to the Edwards Gen3X Bb trumpet has proven to be the single best move I have made in my entire career! This trumpet simply has the most superior combination of balance, slotting, stability of pitch, and tone color I have ever encountered as a professional trumpeter. I arrived at the exact sound I wanted as a result of being able to choose from very specific component parts (bells, leadpipes, bracings, tuning slides, and even types of screws). This was done with the help of a staff that is the most knowledgeable and friendly in the business, a hallmark of the Edwards Instrument Company that sets them apart from the rest.

"It is such a joy to communicate through the trumpet with the feeling that there is nothing about the instrument itself standing in the way, and to know that the extreme demands of modern trumpet playing can be met with this wonderful instrument."
