I think this is the whole show. I believe he plays his Custom Signature Raw XS by Trevor James. I think the Jody Jazz DV Metal mouthpiece sounds great.February 28, 2017 at 11:38 pm #49627
That’s great Mel thanks. The guy seems to have grown up with Grover…..I heard him do a twelve minute Mr Magic a coupla days back. What’s not too like ? Grover had style, and great chops !! Its stupid a.m in the UK, I’ve just checked the tracking on my alto. Its within an hour or so of the guys house. That’s 24 hr postage from Friday last….not good !! When I’m sure he has it…bam !! I’m gonna hit him up with a call. Ask him to send today. Otherwise its gonna be next week…that I can’t do . Wish me luck !!March 1, 2017 at 6:55 am #49663
OK…he’s got it and just mailed me to say he’s gonna hit the couriers this afternoon. I could have it tomorrow, Friday latest. I won’t be satisfied until it arrives; but it all seems to be going well enough. Man, I’ve not had a week without a tenorsax for a long time, I even played with my arm in a sling after the incident. Fingers crossed and have a great day….jakMarch 1, 2017 at 7:34 am #49669
Great news Jak! What model tenor is he sending you?March 1, 2017 at 11:41 am #49675
Hi Mel. Its nothing special he’s sending. I’m not superstitious but he posted today 24 hr. Same thing I did and its taken the best part of a week. It is the National parcelforce so weekends are out. It all looks good !! Regardless with my mpc it could be Selmer 6 or Bundy. Never again wil I take for granted the long practice sessions I do just to justify being a horn player. I’ll let you know when it arrives. George Thorougood and his band are great. Needs to be loud !!March 2, 2017 at 5:16 am #49741
OK, the tenor turned up this morning. A ” Jupiter “….and not in the best of shape. That’s two broken tenors I have now, but the alto is out of the frame and another week until my tech gives this the once over ? Its just good to be holding a horn again. I’m confident the damage is not too bad, so all in all I’m getting there. I’m out of the forum for a month or two. Soon as I have these horns working, I’ll be right back. Until then, take care….jak !!March 3, 2017 at 11:47 am #49827
Didn’t take so long. I woke up tired, and down , no tenor. Phoned my tech. Me and Al go back many many years. Its taken from 7.00a.m to an hour back !! Seems like the guy was pulling a fast one. It had been dropped, it was obvious. I took the tube with a heavy heart. If the news was bad it was going in the trash, no too ways. Enough !! Man it was funny, Al smacked that horn about, swinging it against his bench. ” only way to get it straight ” he said with a grin. Then I knew I had a fighting chance. Man he used neck expanders, pulled out keys that had been pushed in. He got the thing playing !! Playing good !! I never thought I’d be so happy to have a Jupiter. Even the stock mpc isn’t bad. It won’t be staying but yeah, my estimation of them as a sax ?? After the kicking this one took….yeah its cool and its great to know tomorrow I can get the show back on the road !!March 4, 2017 at 3:10 pm #49942
Andrew Snitzer and the Trevor James signature Custom Raw XS SaxophoneMarch 4, 2017 at 4:52 pm #49944
I played one of these tenors at the NAMM show recently and they were the best thing there, really nice horns.
If anyone wants one the North American distributor is a friend of mine and will give you the best deal possible
so let me know.March 5, 2017 at 12:57 pm #49984
Trevor James have taken a huge leap with this horn. Its great to see. Up until then they always made good semi pro horns. I’ve yet to hear a bad word about these Raw and know a few guys who have offloaded horns they have been inseparable from for years ; S20 a Beuscher THC
