Trevor James Chanson – Explore the magic of tone


Trevor James Chanson flutes (previously named Cantabile) are ideal ‘upgrade’ flutes for established players who wish to add a precious metal element on their instrument and fully explore the vast tonal and performance possibilities it presents.  Exploring the array of tones and subtle characteristics of the flute is a wonderful experience. The 925 silver headjoints and additional features on Chanson flutes mean you can confidently explore trickier fingering techniques, octaves and vibrato styles safe in the knowledge that a great tone will be delivered time after time.

Ideal for players progressing through Advanced Intermediate Grades 6-8.


French-style pointed key arm mechanism


Chanson flutes feature French-style pointed key arms.

The key-arms are the parts of a flute which connect the keys to the body of the flute. Traditionally reserved for only premium model flutes, French-style pointed key arms feature an arm that extends to the centre of the key and helps to strengthen the mechanism, making for a stronger and tighter key placement, which means no leaks and squeaks

These key arms also result in excellent note intonation; reward speedy playing; and aid the development of faster techniques - so you’ll be well-placed to take on those more challenging pieces.


925 Silver Headjoint


The headjoint is the most important part of the flute as it’s where the sound originates. So, any instrument with a sub-standard headjoint will also have substandard playability.

All Chanson flutes feature 925 silver headjoints.

Certain advanced playing techniques and tonal flavours can only be achieved through the addition of a precious metal to the headjoint of your flute. 925 silver - as suggested by the name - is a metal that has a 92.5% silver content. It is this precious silver metal content that helps naturally produce a superior sound quality, perfect for adding a new range of tonal characteristics to your playing.


Silver-plated body, that will last


You can be safe in the knowledge that Chanson flutes have a triple plated finish on their tubing.

To ensure that the sliver-plating on your TJ flute will last a lifetime – unlike inferior instruments- Trevor James developed their own method of coating flutes. After much research they discovered that by copper-plating the nickel tubing first, the subsequent two (yes two!) layers of silver-plate are rock solid, giving you the most durable finish of any step-up flute.


Setup in the UK by experienced TJ Technicians


And don’t forget, each Trevor James Chanson Flute is crafted to exacting standards with the best components from around the world, with a final hand set-up in our UK technical workshops based in Kent, south-east England.  This ensures that each individual instrument is in tiptop playable condition and no other flutes at this price receive this level of care and attention.


CS Shaped Lip Plate


The shoulders of the lip plate have been raised to facilitate a very easy and wide-open lower register with enhanced dynamic possibilities.  This makes it a little easier for you to explore the instrument’s lower registers and also offers enhanced dynamic possibilities.
