Why Amelia Plays Edwards
“Edwards Instrument Co. is a company that cares deeply about the people who play their instruments. When I worked through a trombone overuse injury, Edwards custom-made a horn for me so I could keep playing. Because of Edwards, I was able to continue my trombone career while healing my injury.”
