Trevor James flutes
TJ flutes are based in Lenham, Kent (U.K) and are a multi-award winning specialist flute brand distributed around the world.
With many of the team here being flute players who also love the alto and bass flute, we all noticed as we were growing up, that we didn’t see many musicians outside of the traditional flute choirs playing these beautiful instruments. So in 2010 we made it our mission to really push these glorious and deep sounding voices to flute players around the world.
The original Trevor James ‘C’ flutes were first introduced to the world music markets by Mr Trevor James in the late 1980’s and are now distributed to 54 countries. They have won several UK Music Industry Awards with the TJ alto flute being awarded ‘The Best Woodwind Instrument of the Year’ in 2015!
The wonderful and tonally responsive TJ alto and bass flutes were originally designed tested and then finally launched in 1992 and have since become one of the world’s favourite background flute brands. More importantly, these excellent flutes are at a price that makes them truly affordable.
As a music company, we believe that our corporate responsibility is to simply listen, ponder, sketch, design and create a Trevor James instrument that lets the player reach their true potential. There really is nothing like finding an alto and bass that feels right. Play one and you’ll find these wonderful instruments opening up new sounds, colours, textures and much greater performance opportunities for you!
We actively embrace all forms of social media as we value a deep and on-going dialogue with players and teachers wherever they live. All links to the various social media channels can be found at the foot of this website or on the Social Media page.
Despite our worldwide success, we retain individuality for each Trevor James instrument by our unique Guarantee document included with every instrument. This booklet not only describes basic care and maintenance advice but also includes a unique numbering code so that we can track which member of the Trevor James technical staff set-up and final checked the instrument prior to despatch. Our UK based technical workshop and R&D teams are composed entirely of musicians and experienced specialist repairers.
Buying a musical instrument is a very personal choice and we passionately believe that musicians, who choose a Trevor James alto and bass flute, do so in the knowledge that it will enable their own ‘aspirations’ to be reached.
