The '88 Horn

1988 saw the initial idea for a saxophone from Trevor James, following great popularity from their flutes. The aim was to produce an instrument that was free blowing, had plenty of character and a well designed instrument constructed to great standards. This is a 25 year anniversary of the original, which keeps much of the same design and adds some visual and performance "twists".

'13 Features on the '88

The '88 saxophone has many innovative features. A new 4 point brace system has been made to give optimum strength and rigidity to vulnerable areas of the saxophone. The crook on the TJ sax has been rifled to produce a better airflow through the instrument. This in turn produces a bigger and bolder sound. To celebrate UK manufacture, the Union Jack has been added to the octave key.

Champagne Frost Finish

The '88 saxophone has been finished in a champagne frosted finish which is made in a different manner to most lacquer finishes. The finish is a water based coat which, once baked, hardens to create a frosted finish.

Reviews

"The new Trevor James Horn '88 offers the same classic warmth and breadth of tone of the standard gold lacquer model, but with a twist - the sound is more powerful and a fair bit brighter!"
