TJ The Horn Two-Piece Soprano
The original soprano ideal for first-time players
New for 2019, and founded on the original designs of TJ saxes in the late 1980s, this saxophone not only looks great but is tonally very encouraging to all new students of the soprano.
In keeping with our quality design and manufacturing base-line, this saxophone is built using the highest quality materials and then further quality-checked at our technical workshops in Lenham (U.K) by our wonderful team of technicians before making its way to our worldwide network of TJ instrument distributors and then on to your nearest music dealer.
