The award winning tenor for professional sax players built in England
"A monster sax" ...Andy Sheppard
"This is not just a good horn, it's a great Horn".....Andy Snitzer
"...The TJ boffins were looking for a horn that would break them into the pro market. They've found it, and in so doing have rewritten the shortlist. It's not just a good horn, it's a great horn ‐ and for the price you'd have to be utterly, utterly insane not to try one before buying anything else. .....Stephen Howard...Author of the Haynes Saxophone Manual
As an advanced and professional sax player you will have experience of playing saxophones made of different metals and finishes. The Signature Custom saxophone aims to bridge the gap between what the player 'demands' in their 'Horn' and what the manufacturer supplies in return.
The award winning 'RAW' and 'RAW XS' Signature Custom saxophone have been developed following more than 12 months of testing, discussion and research with sax players around the world who wanted a genuine vintage sound along with an aged look to their instrument. Unlike many other Companies who simply apply a coloured finish to the instrument to give it the appearance of being old, we have simply taken the saxophone in it's raw manufactured condition and added the mechanism. So when we say the instrument is RAW...it really is!!
The result?....An instrument with a wide amount of tonal colours, sound options and flexibility which is more personal, more advanced and unlike any other!
The most populat model is the RAW and RAW XS which are designed to 'age' and look like a 'vintage' horn very quickly.
The 'Raw' XS saxophone undergoes extra (XS) hand buffing to the body and mechanism which as sax players tell us "gives it a stunning and yet realisitic old sax look" compared to the standard 'RAW' sax model which is visibly darker throughout.
