The Trevor James Horn 88 series of saxophones are HUGE sounding saxophones for players who really want to be heard! The Horn 88 features a Gold Frosted finish (a new water based coating which becomes very hard when baked) which maintains the depth and warmth of a traditional gold lacquer sax, but adds a lot of projection and power. The inside of the crook tenon also has gun rifling to enhance the air flow, making this a big sounding sax!
