Trevor James Signature Custom - Alto Sax (T7978)


Product Information

This is a superb pre-owned example of a TJ Signature Custom Raw Alto Saxophone. The aesthetic and mechanical condition is excellent throughout and the instrument has been serviced in our woodwind workshop prior to sale. Like all our pre-owned stock it comes with a 6 month warranty and 14 day approval period.

These Saxophones are hand assembled in the UK under the supervision of TJ head technician Dave Farley. This particular example still has its certificate of manufacturer from May 2014 and in all honesty the aesthetic condition hardly looks to have changed. The mechanics are excellent throughout as are the pads, corks, springs and felts.

These Custom Raw saxophones are unlacquered, in fact during the production process the brass is left in its raw state and ‘dip cleaned’. This results in a stable unlacquered finish which allows the instrument to really resonate and we think it looks super cool. It has that ‘vintage’ look but with a modern feel. The touch pieces are all mother of pearl and the instrument benefits from double arms on the low C and C# keys.

The outfit is supplied in a smart shaped case with a wooden shell for protection and a black material overlay. The sound is full of projection and weight thanks to the slightly enlarged bell design. This would be a great Alto Sax for any advancing player wanting a pro-level instrument without totally breaking the bank.
