Tenor Trombone Slides
Edwards trombones are available with either the standard weight or an optional heavier slide. The heavier slide is specified with the letter "N", which refers to nickel sleeves and end crook. These slides can provide darker sounds that hold together well at extreme forte volumes. All slides come 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-STD-AN is the standard .547" single bore all nickel slide. This trombone slide has a more rounded end crook similar to Conn slides. Quick in response, the T-STD-AN blows freely in all registers and adds the warm characteristics of the nickel slides. The intensity of the fundamental is accented with upper overtones providing a unique blend of darkenss and brilliance.
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-BC-AN has the same end crook as the T-BCN but with all nickel outer tubes. This slide combines the width of blow with a centered sound and quick response never before found without these material combinations.
The T-DBN is a .547"/.562" dual bore slide. This slide has a bass crook and provides the biggest sound in the middle and lower registers, ideal for an orchestral second trombonist.
The T-DB-AN is also a .547"/.562" dual bore, but with all nickel outer tubes. This slide has a bass crook and provides the biggest sound in the middle and lower registers, ideal for an orchestral second trombonist.
All of the above slides may be used on the T327. However, there are slides exclusive to this model.
The T327-1(N) is a .525" single bore slide. Using this slide, the T327 is similar in size to a Bach 36.
The T327-2N is a .525"/.547" dual bore slide. This slide helps bridge the gap between the medium and large tenor trombones. This slide is only available with the nickel sleeves and end crook.
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 endcrook for the .500" and .508" bore slides. This endcrook works great for individuals that want a feel similar to the 2B or 3B but with the modularity of an Edwards.
The T-302-1 is a .500" single bore all yellow brass slide with dual radius endcrook. This slide provides a player with the greatest flexibility in the upper register and is great for lead playing.
The T-302-1N is a .500" single bore slide with dual radius endcrook and nickel outer tubes.
The T-302-1N-S is a .500" single bore slide with single radius endcrook and nickel outer tubes.
The T-302-2 is a .500"/.508" dual bore slide all yellow brass slide. This slide bridges the gap between the smaller T-302-1 and T-302-3 slides.
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 endcrooks)
The T-302-3 is a .508" single bore slide with all yellow brass outer tubes and dual radius endcrook. This slide has the most open feel of any Edwards jazz slide.
The T-302-3N is a .508" single bore slide with nickel outer tubes and dual radius endcrook.
The T-302-3N-S is a .508" single bore slide with nickel outer tubes and single radius endcrook.

In Their Own Words
"For most of my professional career, I have performed on an Edwards bass trombone and have always appreciated how it has felt like a natural extension of my playing. The ability to create a trombone that fits you physically as well as musically is such an important factor in being comfortable in any ensemble or musical style.
"From the very first note I was impressed with how it played with such ease and openness yet still maintaining great accuracy and control giving me a rich sound that I had never attained from any other instrument. With an Edwards trombone there are no limitations and you have the confidence that whatever the musical situation, you will have an instrument that will exceed all of your expectations."
