Tenor Trombone T350-E

The Edwards T350-E has been the orchestral tenor trombone of choice for two decades.

More professionals choose Edwards because of the T350-E's individuality. Trombonists can select from a number of options to guarantee a perfect setup.

8" or 8½" bell flares are available in a variety of wall thicknesses and tempers with soldered or unsoldered rims. In addition, you may choose from yellow, rose or red brass with a clear, lacquer finish.

An Axial Flow valve is standard on the T350-E. The Edwards Axial Flow valve is an open wrap design. Edge bracing also comes standard on this model.

Single and dual bore slides in standard weight and lightweight configurations include three brass leadpipes with further custom leadpipe options available in silver and brass.

Changing tuning slide material and design has a profound effect on instruments. Edwards has many tuning slide options available on request.

Standard Features

Bore Size
.547" or .547"/.562" bore
Interchangeable leadpipe system with 3 leadpipes
Bell Weights
  • 21 Gauge - Heaviest (.028" thick)
  • 22 Gauge (.025" thick)
  • 23 Gauge - Lightest (.022" thick)
Bell Materials
  • Yellow Brass (70% Copper / 30% Zinc)
  • Rose Brass (85% Copper / 15% Zinc)
  • Red Brass (90% Copper / 10% Zinc)
Bell Treatments
  • Soldered
    • A soldered bell tends to have a very centered sound with a lot of core (fundamental). The articulations are slightly dampened and softer with the solder, while the sound is more direct and compact.
  • Unsoldered
    • An unsoldered bell has a very wide sound with more overtones. Articulations are easier with an unsoldered rim. More near feel is apparent with these bells as the sound is wider, which helps give the player more feedback.
  • Tempered
    • Tempering occurs when a bell is spun twice on a mandrel which work hardens the bell. This adds brilliance and colour to the sound.
  • Double Buffed
    • Double buffing thins the bell slightly. It actually creates a thickness in between any two gauges.
  • Heat Treated
    • Heat treating is a baking of the entire bell. This softens the metal immensely and creates a very dark sound. This works best on heavier bells as it tends to free them up. Heat treating is not recommended on thinner bells as it makes them more prone to mute dents. The CF treatment has virtually replaced heat treating.
  • CF Treated
    • CF treating is a partial heat treating process. This treatment allows the bell to blow more freely and adds colour to the sound.
  • Axial Flow Valve
  • Pitched in F
  • T-STDN
    • 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.
  • T-STD-AN
    • 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.
  • T-BCN
    • 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.
  • T-BC-AN
    • 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.
  • T-DBN
    • 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.
  • T-DB-AN
    • 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.
Tuning Slides
  • Single Radius
    • Single Radius tuning slides are the most common. They have one continuous bend from small to large end. They are very free blowing and open in all registers.
  • Dual Radius
    • Dual Radius tuning slides have two bends. The shape is more square with the two bends making a flattened top. The dual radius provides a quicker response and ease in the upper register, however, the sound is more compact than the single radius tuning slide. All dual radius tuning slides are CF treated to offset the compact nature of this tuning slide.
  • Both types available in yellow or red brass
  • RawBrass
  • Lacquer
  • Silver Plate
  • Gold Plate
  • Satin Finish

In Their Own Words

Brian Diehl

"I choose to play Edwards for the even control throughout the horn's entire range. Just as we as musicians are constantly evolving, so too are the Edwards trombone designs. Case in point- my old Edwards valve (which had never given me ANY problems) began showing signs of old age, so I took a look at a new one. I couldn't believe how much more free-blowing and smooth it was!

"When playing in a section of Edwards instruments, blend is immediate and the sound is gorgeous. Much of the work in section playing is removed by the nature of the full, round sounds of the Edwards trombones.

"Additionally, I would recommend playing Edwards trombones for any audition that should come up. The reason is simple- I want to eliminate as many possible hindrances (intonation difficulties, uneven sound) and concentrate on playing each round. The Edwards design leaves you free to promote your music!"
