What they say

‘Built to Perform’ is not a tag line or slogan but was the design objective for the Trevor James Renaissance range of brass instruments.

With over 25 years of design experience Trevor James knows how important instrument design is in helping players achieve their musical goals. To this end Trevor James spent several years working closely with brass players and designers to determine the designs and features required to create a range of brass instruments, which will enable players to reach these goals.

With a range of design features unique to the Trevor James Renaissance range of brass, including the new TJ acoustic bell brace, we believe that the Trevor James Renaissance brass range has set a new standard in brass manufacture and design and is clearly ‘Built to Perform’.

Yellow Brass & Silver Plate Finish

The yellow brass provides a nice balance between the various playing parameters which makes it the most widely used and commonly played alloy in the world. A standard mix of 70 percent copper and 30 percent zinc helps to provide a focused sound with a solid core with very little resistance. The silver plate emphasises the soft yet bright tone of the tenor horn - ideal for brass bands.

Everything You Need

The Trevor James Tenor Horn comes with everything you need to get started. A backpack-style case is included for protecting your instrument while travelling. The case features a large side pocket designed to hold all your sheet music. Also included is the Trevor James 3TH mouthpiece so you can waste no time getting started with your tenor horn.

Renaissance Range

The new renaissance range from Trevor James has set a new standard in brass manufacture. These instruments have been uniquely designed and engineered to integrate perfectly into a British brass band. The renaissance range is ideal for those looking for a step-up from a starter instrument and wanting to progress their playing.
