Strive for a signature sound. The 502 gives you core in all registers, with breadth of sound when you need it. Look no further. Tested in the halls of Boston, NYC, and St. Louis with James Markey and Gerry Pagano.
Players have been asking for a Rotax bass trombone for quite some time. After years of development, Edwards is happy to announce that the B502 is now ready for purchase. They've been testing it in the marketplace for over a year. In that time, refinements have been made to their original designs.
Edwards' goal when building the B502 was simple – to maintain a consistent sound throughout every register. More to the point, they wanted that sound to be "trombone-like", especially in the mid and upper registers. Gone are the WOOFTONES of the 90's. This horn has plenty of clarity and sparkle, allowing you to express your musical ideas no matter the setting.
The B502D-R has dependent Rotax valves, with a rose brass bell, and your choice of a single or dual bore slide. The slide has rose brass outer tubes, a yellow end crook, and nickel oversleeves. The leadpipe is removable to allow you to find the best mouthpiece and leadpipe combination to fit your needs.
