Trevor James Virtuoso – Placing unbridled dynamic possibilities at your fingertips

 

With 925 silver headjoints, bodies and footjoints, as well as numerous other high-quality features, Virtuoso flutes are the perfect choice if you demand dynamics, colour, a deep timbre and a wide tonal range from your instrument.

 

925 Silver – A dynamic & exciting tonal palette

 

The combination of a 925 Silver headjoint, 925 Silver body and 925 Silver footjoint tube results in a truly wonderful sound. With this precious metal fully enveloping the instrument – not just the headjoint – you can expect a genuinely noticeable difference in tone, and more mature timbre and, most importantly, an extremely even flow of air through the entire body of the flute.

 

French-style pointed key arm mechanism

 

Virtuoso 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.

 

Two Headjoint crown options Included. Heavy-weighted engraved & Yellow Pear wood

 

The crown is another piece of a flute’s anatomy that plays a crucial role in the quality of the sound produced. It acts as a plug that seals the top end of the flute and directs air – or the sound, if you like – down the flute past the keys.

A heavier weighted crown offers greater air resistance and therefore centres and focuses the airflow down the length of the flute more uniformly and efficiently - which results in a more resonant and responsive instrument. This is particularly important as your repertoire requires you to retain optimum tone when playing ever more tricky pieces.

All Trevor Virtuoso flutes feature a heavy-weighted engraved crown as standard, plus the addition of a Yellow Pear wood crown for a wider array of sound possibilities.

 

Hand over-cutting and undercutting of the embouchure hole

 

The embouchure hole is a very important component of any flute as it’s where air is initially blown into the tubing. This is entry point for the instrument’s energy source.  Many flute headjoints feature machine-produced embouchure holes – which although functional – do not necessarily allow the flute to perform at its optimal level. Machine-production can leave rough and misshapen edges that mean flutes don’t sound their very best.

A perfectly cut embouchure hole requires an expert eye and human hands to ‘over-cut and under-cut’ the exact angles, smooth any rough edges and fill-in any irregular shapes.

All Trevor James Virtuoso flutes feature hand over-cut and undercut embouchure holes. This extra attention to detail ensures that from the first time you blow into your new TJ Flute, you can be confident that every subtle nuance will be within your full control.

 

Setup in the UK by experienced TJ Technicians

 

And don’t forget, each Trevor James Virtuoso 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.

 

 

TJ Wooden lip and riser head joint

 

Handmade in England, the wooden lip and riser option is only available on 925 silver headed flute models. This head joint offers a completely different feel and tonal characteristic compared to the usual 925 silver and is well suited to all musical genres, especially early music and baroque pieces.
