Trevor James TJ10X Student Flute, Silver Riser and Lip Overview
Looking for your first flute? The Trevor James TJ10X flute is a free-blowing instrument which has been designed for beginners. Boasting three layers of plating, the Trevor James TJ10X flute looks as good as it sounds!
Skilled technicians carefully assemble the Trevor James TJ10X flute to ensure that every part works precisely as it should. For further quality control, every single instrument is checked by technicians in the UK to ensure that you’re getting the best possible instrument. No other flute at this price has this sort of care and attention.
To further help your playing, the Trevor James TJ10X flute has a specially shaped silver lip plate and riser. This design opens up the lower register which is a huge advantage for student flutes. What’s more, to ensure your TJ10X stays safe, it includes a purple lined wooden case with a black, fleece-lined case cover.
Assured quality control
When designing the TJ10X, Trevor James wanted to ensure that they would capture the excitement of new players. By streamlining the manufacturing and reducing costs where possible, Trevor James was able to produce the TJ10X to a much higher standard than similarly priced flutes. During this process, they made sure that they never compromised performance quality, ensuring that you still get a high-quality Trevor James instrument. And for even more peace of mind, the TJ10X is double-checked by UK technicians to make sure everything is in working order. This sort of attention to detail is rarely found on flutes twice the price of the TJ10X, so to have this sort of assurance is truly breathtaking!
The charm of silver
To have a flute at this price with a solid silver lip plate and rise is truly amazing. It’s clear that Trevor James understands the need to invest positively in the instrument that could influence your career. This sterling silver lip and riser provides a flexible and resonant tone with a deep timbre and wider tonal range.
Often manufacturers of student flutes will use cheap pads which can lead to playing issues in the future. This is why Trevor James has used quality Pisoni pads on the TJ10X flute. Known in the flute world as some of the best pads you can get, these Italian pads will not let you down. Thanks to their high-quality construction, these pads will form a tight seal around the tone holes. What does this mean for you? Easier note production, better intonation, and an overall better playing experience. These pads are definitely going to make your life easier.
Triple plated finish
To ensure your new TJ10X flute looks fantastic, Trevor James plates it three times. Quite often with student instruments, the plating can start to come off – this is why Trevor James plates the TJ10X three times. Firstly, the nickel silver flute is plated with copper. This copper layer helps the second and third layer of silver plate to stick to the flute to create a gorgeous finish. This method of plating provides a rock-solid finish which is more durable than most student flutes.
With over 25 years of design experience, Trevor James knows how important instrument design is in helping players achieve their musical goals. To this end, Trevor James has spent several years working closely with musicians and engineers to determine the features required to create a range of instruments which will enable players to reach these personal goals.
