“I’ve never played a trombone with such quality sound in all registers as my Edwards T350-E. You can achieve a deep and warm sound as well as play freely and effortlessly. It is an instrument that allows you to be flexible both to play solo repertoire and, in my case, to perform the role of principal trombone in the orchestra.”
