The Edwards T350 has been the orchestral tenor trombone of choice for over a decade.

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

8" or 8" 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. The Edwards Axial Flow valve is an open wrap design. Edge bracing, signified as T-350E, is optional 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.

Pros: Great service, great instrument, wonderful slide, infinitely interchangable
Cons: Wide hand slide can be a stretch

Custom horns from a custom shop (a subdivision of Getzen). Go to the shop for a fitting if you can. Otherwise, they can make recommendations and ship you different parts to try out. Excellent packing on all their shipments.

The Thayer valve has a fairly long throw. Not really a problem (see Bullet Brace comments below).

The response is great, and a perfect slide.

Options are many - definitely get it with Edge Bracing, it does make a difference. The Bullet Brace will make it easier to hold and make the wide handslide much more comfortable to normal sized hands. It will however, make it slightly harder to work the trigger. This was not a problem until I got old enough to develop arthritis in my hands and thumb. After it got worse, I couldn't use the valve effectively with the Bullet Brace on. They worked with me on the problem, but their "short-throw" option didn't work that well.

While I loved this horn, I eventually sold it and used my Getzen straight bone for a few years while I searched for a horn with an F rotor that woudl fit my hand and situation better.

By the way, check out the Getzen Trombones. They make a number of models that are the same as the Edwards, but are soldered versions using the most popular Edwards options at a much better price. If you know what options you want, you can save a lot.

Pros: You can create YOUR perfect trombone!
Cons: none

If you have well in mind WHAT is your perfect horn, you can create it customizing a T350. No more compromises. End of the story!
Big variety of bell flares, perfect (new series!) valve sections, handslides smooth and durable.
Very, very good horn, in my opinions. I played another brand horn for a decade, good horn, but with some minor cons...
With Edwards I've created the trombone that suite me perfectly.

Pros: Amazing tone, perfect slide, so good to play
Cons: none

I wanted one of these for a long time and once I got it I was not disappointed. This trombone has to be the very best you can buy for orchestral and band work. The sound is wonderful and its so easy and enjoyable to play, every note slots in effortlessly, it projects acroos an orchestra with no difficulty at all but also without any break up in sound at high volume. Just go and buy one!

Pros: Great versatility
Cons: maintance

The thing I love about my Edward T-350 is I can mix and match thing. If I am unhappy with a slide or a leadpipe that can be changed in order to help me become a better trombonist.

The only negative thing I have to say about my horn is that it is high maintance, especially the thayer valve.

Pros: Beautiful Sound, Perfect Fit
Cons: none

You can go out and buy a signature series trombone (like the lindberg 88h-sgxcl) and it will be a great trombone. Though there is one problem with that, the trombone you buy is made for someone else, and not you.

With an Edwards, the trombone you get will be your own "signature" model trombone. I sat for 4 hours in the Edwards shop and tried and tried the trombone with different bells, slides, bracing, etc... I finally walked away with an instrument that is solely my own.

When I play my Edwards, I don't have to worry about working the instrument and I can focus more on making the music.

The scale only goes to 10, but I'd give it a 15.
