Trevor James SR 'EVO'

Trevor James SR 'EVO'

Introducing the latest model design from TJ saxes, the SR ‘EVO’ saxophone (September 2017)

This horn (which will be for the UK market only at the moment) is a development of our popular intermediate 'SR' model.

Top quality Italian leather pads
Metal pad reflectors which give a dynamic & full bodied tone ... read more

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.
