The key phrase Trevor James uses often is not a tagline or a slogan but was the design objective for the Trevor James renaissance range of brass instruments.
Trevor James has set a new standard in brass manufacture and design, making sure that all instruments are built to perform to the musician's needs. The cupronickel (copper-nickel alloy) slides are a great addition to the instrument due to their corrosion resistant properties. This way the slides will be easy to move, even if left for a long period. Orchestral musicians are extremely fond of bells in rose brass, as they produce a much warmer sound and can achieve a broader and more powerful playing required by great works of the classical repertoire.
The silver finish is not only aesthetically pleasing but will also keep your instrument looking newer for longer. 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.
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 has spent several years working closely with brass players and engineers to determine the features required to create a range of brass instruments which will enable players to reach these personal targets.
