Signature Custom RAW XS Tenor Sax
The 'Raw' XS saxophone starts out life as a 'RAW' model and then undergoes extra (XS) hand buffing to the body and mechanism which as sax players tell us "gives it a stunning clean appearance." Over time the shininess fades to give a really realistic old sax look.
"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
Along with a well built body that includes level and smooth tone holes, the Signature Custom Raw saxophones come with other features that have become a staple of the best modern saxophones.
Describing the tone of the Raw Saxophones can be challenging. The Big Bell Raw puts out a huge sound, but while many professional saxophones have a ‘central character’, be it warmth, darkness, or brightness, the Signature Custom Raw’s tonal center is very dependant on the individual player . A slight change in technique can bring out vastly different levels of warmth, or brightness for example.
