£1,349.00
SKU BC4277

Ideal for students looking for a sax with added personality.

The Horn '88 is a special anniversary edition of the original award winning 'The Horn' sax.

Why the Horn '88?

In 1988, Trevor James started to develop his award winning 'Horn,' a free blowing, high quality, well designed saxophone for students.

The 25yr anniversary is celebrated by the new Horn '88. The instrument remains faithful to the design of the original 'The Horn' with some added visual and performance 'twists'. 

New 'Champagne' gold frost finish.
The finish is a new coating which when baked becomes very hard.

Gun rifled crook/neck
The inside of the crook tenon has gun rifling to enhance the air flow and tonal dynamics. This is a big sounding horn!

Octave key crook badge
Proudly sporting the Union Jack flag overlaid with TJ logo.

Reviews

The Trevor James Horn '88 offers the same classic warmth and breadth of tone of the original gold lacquer model, but with a twist - the sound is more powerful and a fair bit brighter. If you are looking for a top student level horn but want to project more than your current outfit, then this could be the horn for you. Jim (Sax.co.uk)
