Learn with confidence
The Trevor James ‘The Horn’ will give you the best possible start to learning the soprano saxophone. When looking closer at the soprano sax, you can really see the attention to detail. To help with durability, Trevor James have decided to rib mount the keys, compared to soldering them directly to the body. Usually only found on more expensive instruments, this small detail will ensure your new saxophone lasts for years to come. When playing the Trevor James sax, you will realise how responsive and resonant it is. This is thanks to the yellow bell and body that also provides outstanding projection and adds brilliance to the tone. This is a fantastic instrument for the first time student or for a saxophonist who requires a quality second instrument on a budget.
Achieving a consistent performance
The high-quality pads and springs used on ‘The Horn’ are essential for producing a consistently pure tone. The pads create a good seal around the tone holes which helps with tuning and overall note production. They have a significantly longer lifespan than standard pads which are often found on student saxophones. This overall quality enables a superior, more reliable tone for a much longer period.
To help with note production, the pads have metal reflectors. Perfect for producing a clear and bright tone with an easy response, these reflectors are ideal for producing your first notes. But a saxophone’s pads are only good if the mechanism uses proper springs. Because of this, Trevor James uses professional-grade blue steel needle springs for the entire mechanism. Not only do these last longer than cheaper springs, but they also allow for a much smoother playing action.
Everything you need
Included with the Trevor James ‘The Horn’ saxophone is a lightweight case. On the outside of the case you will find handles at the top and side, and even backpack straps at the back. There is also a large zipped compartment on the front of the case to store all of your sheet music. The inside of the case has been specifically moulded to fit ‘The Horn’ soprano saxophone. This moulded interior is then covered with a black soft-touch fabric that won’t damage the finish of your instrument. At the front of the case, you will find a large compartment which is ideal for storing your wax, pull-through, or any other accessories. Also included with the TJ saxophone is a mouthpiece and ligature so you can start playing straight away.
