Trevor James Alpha Saxophone
Trevor James Alpha Saxophone
The 'Unique' alto saxophone for the younger or smaller player!!
The Alphasax is based around the original body tube of the TJ alto saxophone with completely redesigned mechanism and tone hole positioning for the smaller individual who would previously have been told to "wait until they got bigger" before they could learn to play the sax.
Winner of the 2014 UK Music Industry Association award for 'Best Woodwind & Brass Instrument of the Year'
Problematic keys with long finger stretch have been removed or redesigned for extra comfort.
The weight has been reduced by an amazing 33%.
Key and Mechanism - The Alphasax in the key of Eb, with a full two octave chromatic facility using established finger positioning to enable the smaller player to learn the alto saxophone using current study books. New and innovative mechanism has enabled us to maintain the finger positioning of a normal saxophone.

Edinburgh Music centre is the expansion of Brass and Woodwind musical instrument restoration and repair est 2002.
Having studied orchestral instrument restoration in 1995 for 3 years and a further 4 years apprenticeship, I opened Brass and woodwind in a small workshop in south west Edinburgh.
We have grown and now have 3 workshops for brass woodwind and string instruments, along with chemical and ultrasonic cleaning room and a pro polishing room, I believe it to be the finest and best equipped musical instrument restoration workshop in the UK.
We have built a showroom for the huge range of instruments we have restored over the years and now offer a large selection of new and fully reconditioned instruments.
We want to thank everyone who has used the shop and workshops over the last 20 years for your continued and valued custom and invite you to visit Edinburgh Music centre for a very warm welcome and the best range musical instruments and accessories available.
