The Edgware ‘Artisan’ range of Woodwind instruments is definitely taking centre-stage when it comes to quality & affordability. Absolutely stunning design and attention to detail that produces an amazing sound.  When you compare the price as well, it puts all of the competitors to shame. Yes, that’s you Yamaha, Buffet & Vincent Bach!!

Don’t just take my word for it. Comments such as “impressive tone and projection”, “excellent soloist instrument”, and “filled the stage with a sonorous delight” are just some of the impressive performances attributes to those using an Edgware instrument.

Let me just give you a quick insight to each of the superb Woodwind instruments on offer.

Sensational Sax

Introducing the new Edgware Artisan Series Eb Alto Saxophone – outstanding in every sense, similar high specification as Yamaha YAS480 but at 1/3 the price!


With the resonant gold-brass, hand engraved bell, it is the perfect upgrade Sax for those wishing to develop their playing from the student level to the next step and beyond; a great musical investment. The Edgware Alto Saxophone is made from high quality, precision engineered components, producing a very natural key action and a strong and expansive tone. Designed with a high F# Key, thumb rest and single key arm, you will find a noticeable increase in quality of tone, projection, smoothness of key action and overall satisfaction when moving up and down the range. This Premium Artisan Eb Alto Saxophone is supplied with a prestige mouthpiece, ligature, padded neck sling and cleaning cloth.  Even the case is deluxe!

Faultless Flute

Presenting the exciting new Edgware Artisan Flute, the new benchmark in high-quality, affordable flutes. Same specification as the Yamaha YFL312 with a Solid Silver headjointbut at half the price!

To be honest, I can’t believe that you can buy a solid-silver headjointed Flute that sounds this good for under £1k. And this is nearly half that price?

To achieve virtuosic perfection, no stone has been unturned in the design and manufacture. The solid silver head joint (had I mentioned that!!?) with classic cut lip-plate for improved response and tone, silver plated precision keywork, french pointed and ‘Y’ arms, and a traditional split E mechanism and ‘C’ foot, provide the discerning performer an instrument of esteem and finesse. This provides accurate articulation and intonation, which are effortlessly achieved even in the most demanding and intricate of musical passages.

Don’t just take my word for it though! When a local professional Flute professor tested and compared the Yamaha YFL312, 412 & Edgware on behalf of her own daughter….guess what? Yep…..she bought the Edgware!  If there was a music industry award for the most outstanding and affordable instrument in the world, let me assure you, this would win hands down!

Classy Clarinet

Edgware Artisan Bb Clarinet; manufactured using the finest solid ebony, with professional twin tuning barrels and high-grade keywork, this is the players choice! Bridging the gap between intermediate and professional clarinet design, the new Edgware ECL01 offers the enthusiastic and improving clarinettist an investment towards virtuosity.

The wonderful new Edgware Bb Artisan Clarinet is an excellent alternative for those who are serious about their performance, and are looking to invest in their development and progression. The sound is deep, warm and resonant, yet the outstanding aspect of this Edgware Clarinet is its versatility. Many high-end models are either suited to the mellowness required by orchestras, or a brightness suited to wind bands or jazz.  Not this one!

Simple Summary

Looking for the perfect instrument to take you to the next level? Looking for a quality of sound and performance that will aid your development and performance? Don’t want to spend £1000’s charged by other manufacturers to achieve this?
