The Trevor James TJ3822BK classic II has for a while now been very popular among beginner saxophonists as it is free blowing, well built, affordable and looks really stylish. It bridges the gap between the cheap, new models available nowadays and the better established, more expensive brands such as Yamaha and Jupiter.
Trevor James are a specialist supplier of brass and woodwind instruments and are still a relatively small company that care enormously about their products and customers. Speaking about the Classic II range, they said their 'aim was to design and manufacture a new range of saxophones to fit into the distinctive, reasonably priced, student saxophone category without compromising quality.' and this they have done extremely successfully. The Trevor James II saxophones are forever being recommended by teachers.
The instrument features a recently updated crook design with high quality Pisoni pads with metal reflectors. It has good solid build quality and produces a lovely resonant sound. It is made from brass and finished in an attractive black lacquer.
The instrument comes as an outfit which includes everything you need to get started (lightweight case, mouthpiece, vandoren reed) and is set up in store prior to despatch to ensure it arrives with you in perfect playing order.
This is an ideal purchase for a beginner tenor saxophonist or for an experience player looking for an affordable doubling instrument.
