A great British designed sax, optimised for jazz players
The Signature Custom Raw has established Trevor James as one of the World's finest saxophone makers. Designed and hand-built in the UK, it features an unlacquered finish and an enlarged bell offering a bigger broader sound.
Hand-built under the supervision of Trevor James' head technician Dave Farley at their UK headquarters, the Signature Custom range is one of the finest available.
Rather than the usual treatment of polishing and buffing, the raw brass is left in its natural state and simply 'dip cleaned'. It is then left unlacquered so that the brass can resonate to its full potential.
The action is smooth and solid without being too heavy, the sound is dynamic and expressive. The unlacquered raw brass gives a greater texture and openness compared with regular polished and lacquered finishes.

The Trevor James Signature Custom RAW alto is one of the best modern saxophones I have played to date. It performs consistently all the way up and down the horn. I love the rich but present tone which is malleable enough for me to express myself honestly and directly through the instrument. The quality of materials and workmanship is second to none. James Morton
I love the Raw to bits! It certainly goes up to 11! The dynamic range is amazing, the choice of tones you can get is endless: anything from a mellow Paul Desmond to an edgy Maceo tone. It is truly the Mother of all Saxophones! Tony 'Rico' Richardson
I have just had a good blow on both alto and tenor versions of the Raw Brass model and can't believe how dynamic and expressive the sound is! There is a much greater texture and openness over and above the regular polished and lacquered finishes, and I think that Trevor James has discovered a formula that will speak volumes to many a jazz player!
