I am about to get a trevor james alto from what I have found there seems to be no adverse comments so Re they a good buy ?
I don't think it is right to refer to the Signature Custom range as hot rodded Taiwanese horns. They are entirely assembled at the factory in Lenham, Kent, albeit that the parts may be manufactured in Taiwan. .
ThanksI have a Trevor James The Horn alto as a back up - in fact I started on it some years ago. It feels a bit entry level against the Mauriat which is my main alto. The keys are not quite where I like them now and the tone at the bottom end is not as full. However, it's a good sax and nothing wrong with them, if you get a good one (asssuming second hand). Yes, do try it first.
Crikey Mick take it easy. Sorry to hear about your illness. If I remember rightly the sax comes with a TJ (Trevor James) mouthpiece which is a stencil (help needed here please forum members). There will be great advice offered on which mouthpieces to use but the ones I started with were Yamaha 5c, Windcraft Etude and then I bought a load of different ones!Hi prof
Sorry for dely in answering but I had a heart attack on wednesday whilst having a few days away in a the dales and I am now reclining in the Lancaster hospital away from family, dog and instruments.
So the next best thing is talking about sax and clarinet to you chaps.
So I havent thought about mouthpieces yet using the one supplied, I need to get your advice on this matter
