“A professional trumpet player has a lot of choices in today’s market. I have performed exclusively with Getzen and Edwards since 1970. Edwards exemplifies a top professional horn and the best service in the industry. Jon Linley’s knowledge and experience was instrumental in fitting me with the horn I am performing on now. I’ve tried many different horns over the past 40 years and Edwards has proven time and time again it is the finest trumpet available for the serious performer.”
