Trevor James says "The brand new Trevor James 5x flute
The aim of this new 'budget' model Trevor James 5x flute model is to capture the potential new flute player, or those returning to playing after an extended break who are working to a very tight and limited budget.
At the price point you will find this brand new TJ 5x flute, there is usually only very poor quality instruments for sale with a brand name you've never heard of. Instruments, which do nothing to meet the learning requirements of an eager new player who doesn’t have the resource or budget to buy one of the world's leading, but more expensive 'Award Winning' starter flutes the TJ 10x.
The team at Trevor James flutes wanted to solve this issue. We wanted to create a budget instrument that will encourage and allow the new player to develop their skills and talent. We also didn't want the player to be discouraged with their new flute constantly at the repairers, which is sadly the experience of many who purchase similar priced flutes with strange, never heard of before brand names online
How have Trevor James done this?
By partnering for the very first time with another factory (unlike all other TJ flutes which are designed and manufactured by ourselves), these TJ 5x models, although still designed by our TJ flute technical team, are priced following manufacturing scaleability and price reductions where we felt they were possible, but most importantly we have also made sure that we haven’t compromised the performance quality.
Headjoint - Designed to be free blowing to assist the new player
Padding – Good quality pads with accurate airtight seal which is vitally important to the performance of the instrument
Good quality and strong mechanism
Purple lined wooden case with black fleecy lined case cover
Care and attention to the finishing of all key work – carefully worked during manufacture and then double checked by our UK technicians to ensure instrument looks great to the eye!
Accuracy and tightness of all fitting of the key assembly - Gives a secure and positive feel to the student.
