… the songs mentioned in the video, I’ll try and have them available for download later this week.
My Trevor James Alto Saxophone Try-Out
The Claude Lakey mouthpiece I tried in the video is not the hard rubber model but is actually a metal mouthpiece. It’s their “aluminum” model. I was checking them out on Amazon.com at this here: Claude Lakey mouthpieces.
Although they make good hard rubber ones too, I’m recommending the “aluminum” model like the one I’m using in the video… that is if you’re going for that bigger and brighter rock sound.
The other one I was playing is the Meyer, check them out here: Meyer alto mouthpieces
The Trevor James saxophones are from the UK and are just now available in the US and Canada. If you live in North America and are interested in these horns let me know and I’ll put you on to the one and only distributor who is here in Vancouver where I live.
You’ll be hearing more and more about these saxophones, actually one of our members Michael (from the US) has recently ordered one and I hope he at least will post a nice picture of it for us!
These are of the highest quality saxophones and are being compared to some of the older established top manufacturers such as Selmer and Yamaha. The sound speaks for itself as you can hear in the above video or in the song video I will put on the “saxophone music” page soon.
As with the other top makes, the Trevor James feels perfect as soon as you hold it and put your hands on the keys. Everything just feels right… no palm keys too high, no cluster keys too far apart etc.
Hopefully I can try out a few more of these in the near future and post the results for you.
