The Generation II Bb and C offer an integral leadpipe system which allows a player to change leadpipes efficiently. This design creates improved stability throughout the harmonic series compared to non-modular trumpets.

Generation II Bells are handcrafted (one piece) in yellow brass, bronze, or sterling silver available with either 4 7/8" (standard) or 5 1/4" (special order) bell flares. Five leadpipes are also available. Please refer to Bell Options and Leadpipe Options for more information.

Valve sections are available with nickel silver pistons. Nickel silver offers the highest quality action with a very smooth blow. Edwards offers a lifetime warranty on all nickel silver valve sets.

Vented valves are an option on all valve sets. Vented pistons create an effortless approach to using the first and third valve slides. When pistons are vented, the first and third slides move freely whether the pistons are in the up or down position. Vented valves seal as normally as standard valves and possess the same playing characteristics as a standard valve set. Vented valves must be requested at the time the order is placed.

Pros: Modular, Great sound, VALVES
Cons: ??

The horn isn't actually mine, its a friends, but I've played on it more than a few times.

The horn is modular, and has a bronze bell with I think maybe a D4 leadpipe. It has a GREAT sound, and the valves are phenomenal. Better than any Getzen valves, ever (Edwards is Getzen's Pro Shop). It was around a 6 week wait, but It's well worth the horn, especially now that its only a few hundred dollars more than a New Strad. They are very consistent, and I suggest buying one.
