In Their Own Words

Philip Brink

"For several years I was happy with my Bach bass trombone — until a friend invited me to visit the Edwards factory. I decided on Edwards immediately. My B454 has kept me happy for the last 10+ years and I see no reason not to continue indefinitely.

"Between Edwards' incredible selection of bells, slides and valve arrangements, as well as their drive to constantly improve and their dedication to each player, there has been no other possibility for me. If you want the best, get an Edwards!"
