Edwards T-STDN vs. Getzen 3047 slides

Post by LarryPrestonRoberson » Tue Apr 16, 2019 2:24 pm

Besides the tenons, are the Edwards T-STDN (T-350) and Getzen 3047 slides essentially the same. Ostensibly all the components appear to be the same—except the tenon. And to me they play/feel nearly identical.

Can anyone confirm this? I learned from an Edwards representative that the crooks are the same component.

Can the tenons be swapped in either case to fit the desired trombone? Succinctly stated, can the tenon be swapped out on a 3047 slide to fit an Edwards receiver?

On the website somewhere there's an article where Edward's said if you were to buy X Y Z exact parts then they would reccomend the Getzen. In that case I dont remember what the bell is but the slide I am pretty sure is just a T-STDN as you described.

Identical, even use the same part stock numbers.

Do you know if the Edwards tenor crook (T-STDN) and bass crook (e.g. T-BCN) trombone hand-slides are the same length and width? I also sent you an email about this and other potential projects.

Larry, I sent you a PM - I have a narrow Shires slide that might also fit the bill and possibly a tenon. The Shires slides are the same length as a comparable Edwards slide. (Not Bach length). Not sure if you saw it or not but just posting here redundantly in case it would interest you

Matt I don't see a PM. At any rate, you can delete my other post:
