A new Edwards Trumpet Performing Artist promotional poster was designed and released this month. It is an honor to be named as one of the artists to represent this outstanding manufacturer, and I am especially humbled to be in the company of such artists as Leonard Candelaria (Regent Professor of Music Emeritus, University of North Texas), Trombone Shorty (International Jazz Artist), Graham Ashton (Professor of Trumpet/Chair, SUNY Purchase), and others.
Artist comment for Edwards website:
"My recent change to the Edwards Gen3X Bb trumpet has proven to be the single best move I have made in my entire career! This trumpet simply has the most superior combination of balance, slotting, stability of pitch, and tone color I have ever encountered as a professional trumpeter. I arrived at the exact sound I wanted as a result of being able to choose from very specific component parts (bells, leadpipes, bracings, tuning slides, and even types of screws). This was done with the help of a staff that is the most knowledgeable and friendly in the business, a hallmark of the Edwards Instrument Company that sets them apart from the rest."
"It is such a joy to communicate through the trumpet with the feeling that there is nothing about the instrument itself standing in the way, and to know that the extreme demands of modern trumpet playing can be met with this wonderful instrument."
