Edwards tenor trombone slides are available in multiple configurations. Each has brass slide tubes with nickel sleeves and end crook. Each comes with three interchangeable leadpipes.
The following slides are compatible with both Edwards tenor models.
The T-STDN is the standard .547″ single bore slide. This slide has a more rounded end crook similar to Conn slides. Quick in response, the T-STDN blows freely in all registers. A very centered tone can be achieved with this slide.
The T-BCN has a bass end crook similar to Bach slides. The squared-off design of this crook allows for a very open low register and a bigger sound overall than the T-STDN slides. This slide is also a .547″ bore.
The T-BCN-Y is a new take on the T-BCN. This slide has yellow outer tubes and a yellow end crook that provides a wide and warm sound. It is played in many different orchestras, including the Boston Symphony and Seattle Symphony.
There are a few specifications that make the T-396 unique. Rose outer tubes have been paired with a custom sterling silver leadpipe and a yellow brass end crook. This combination provides trombonists with a rich sound and clear articulations.
Edwards jazz trombones are available with either a yellow brass or nickel slide. The nickel slide is specified with the letter “N”. All slides come with three interchangeable leadpipes.
Nickel slides are now available with a single radius end crook for the .500″ and .508″ bore slides. This end crook works great for individuals that want a feel similar to the 2B or 3B but with the modularity of an Edwards.
The T-302-1N is a .500″ single bore slide with dual radius end crook and nickel outer tubes.
The T-302-1N-S is a .500″ single bore slide with single radius end crook and nickel outer tubes.
The T-302-2N is a .500″/.508″ dual bore slide with nickel outer tubes. (dual bore jazz slides are not currently available with single radius end crooks).
The T-302-3N is a .508″ single bore slide with nickel outer tubes and dual radius end crook.
The T-302-3N-S is a .508″ single bore slide with nickel outer tubes and single radius end crook.
