Edwards Trumpets

Generation II Trumpet

Edwards Instrument Co. began building trumpets in 1994. Andrew Naumann joined the Edwards design team in 1998 and established the first generation of Edwards Trumpets. These instruments were offered in B flat as well as C. The Generation I trumpets were constructed as an interchangeable instrument.

Since 1998, improvements in design led to the introduction of the Generation II models. These trumpets offer an integral leadpipe design as well as one-piece hand hammered bells. The integral leadpipe design offers a more efficient way of changing leadpipes and creates a perfect alignment from the end of the leadpipe to the beginning of the tuning slide tube. This alignment is critical because it allows a smoother transition of air flow which creates improved intonation and stability when playing the instrument. One-piece hand hammered bells offer the player the highest quality of sound in the industry. All Edwards bells are made at our factory by a small team of expert craftsmen.

In the Fall of 2000, Edwards introduced the Generation X Bb and C trumpets. These instruments were designed to create an extremely stable, rich tone. The Generation X models still offer all the flexibility of the Generation II Models. There are a variety of bells, leadpipes and two bore sizes to choose from. All Generation X Models come standard in 24K gold plating.
