Trevor James 5xE

Trevor James 5xE

We are very excited to announce the arrival of the BRAND NEW Trevor James TJ5xE student flute!

If you’re looking for a truly superb ‘first’ instrument, or perhaps you’re returning to the flute after a long break the TJ5X is for you. And the best thing is, it’s incredibly good value.

Designed by the multi award-winning British company, Trevor James ®, the 5x is the younger sibling of the award-winning 10x flute. The 10x was designed to offer the very finest build quality and features at a remarkably affordable price, and this philosophy is carried over into the 5x.

Trevor James ® are a specialist wind instrument company, focussing a great amount of their time and effort on encouraging more people to experience the joys of flute and saxophone. It’s with this goal in mind that the 5x flute was created.

The scheme allows individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 to apply for a loan of up to £2,000 for the purchase of any kind of musical instrument, and pay it back in nine monthly installments, completely interest free.

The scheme has been extended to allow anyone to purchase an instrument for someone aged under 18. Please enquire for more details.
