AT LAST !! I really have to be quick as I have band practice ; getting picked up in a half hour. The Trevor James arrived, its great. A ” classic ” is the name on the bell. Coupled with the Berg, I got back this morning, the Lawton also, it sounds fabulous. Hope you don’t mind Johnny, if I take a quick shot before I go and send it to you as my avatar. If its a hassle, no worries. Gotta dash, speak later….happy jakApril 20, 2017 at 5:17 pm #52940
” Hi I’m back, the central scrutinizer ” ( Frank Zappa ) and have just put the horn through its paces. Its 100 %; played just great. One thing that has been on my mind, is the sling Clarence uses. Somebody once mentioned these, said they were totally the best, I’ll look into that one.
So, first time I’ve played with these guys. They do covers at corporate functions. They also played ” Respect ” in a different key….grrr !!!!
All in all a good rockin start ; we went through,
Stormy Monday – blues
Burn for you – Jace Everett
Respect – Aretha
Dreams come true – Hall & Oates ( perc )
Pick up the prices….thanks JF
And an awful version of ” Grapevine ” ; as much as I dig Marvin, I dunno, I’ve just heard it too many times, it was too fast too slow; I suggested we change it to ” inner city blues “, if there has to be a Marvin Gaye tune. Yup, a good session.
Take it easy….jakApril 21, 2017 at 3:11 am #52974
I think I’ve got the same model a Trevor James Classic II “The Horn” had it about a month now. I’m told they’re a decent starter Saxophone, quite happy with mine to be honest hope you enjoy it.April 21, 2017 at 3:23 am #52976
Hi Carl. Nice to cyber meet you. Yeah, mine came yesterday. Its a beautiful looking horn. A kind of black chrome finish, gold keys. What mpc are you using ?April 21, 2017 at 3:44 am #52984
Mines the laquered finish–very shiny–have to play it with shades on it’s so bright lol. Don’t know what mouthpiece it is Jak probably the Trevor James one that comes with the Sax.April 21, 2017 at 3:53 am #52985
Yeah, I got one of those, plus dozens of reeds. Its not a bad mpc !!April 21, 2017 at 10:24 am #53023
Actually that’s a good point Jak, does the Trevor James MPC have any distinguishing marks as the one with mine has none.April 21, 2017 at 10:54 am #53033
Yo Carl…all good man ? First time I’ve looked at it, and yeah ; TJJ stamped slap in the centre of the barrel top. The lady that sent it has put a real old Rovner on it. Not a great fan of them, nor the ” Hahn ” synthetic in the mix. Brand new #3 if anybody wants it. Coupla boxes of Rico jazz select also, just when I’ve switched back to bari reeds. Ho hum !! I’ll be one of those E bay nerds that put up ” one reed, used once “…LOL !!April 21, 2017 at 11:12 am #53036
This means the MP on my TJ classic is not the one it came supplied with, as mine has no marks, seems to work ok though.April 21, 2017 at 11:18 am #53039
No marks at all, numbers ??April 21, 2017 at 11:19 am #53040
Can you load up a picture ?April 21, 2017 at 3:06 pm #53059
No, no marks or anything mate, it was secondhand though (the sax). I will take picture and try to upload.
