The Signature Custom is an award winning alto sax for the professional player.
"...On the specs alone it's an impressive horn. The build quality, the setup and the whole package adds up to a very credible pro-quality instrument - and when you factor in the feel, the tone and the response I think it's fair to say that the RAW XS raises the standard for the 21st century alto. .....Stephen Howard...Author of the Haynes Saxophone Manual
As an advanced and professional sax player you will have experience of playing saxophones made of different metals and finishes. The Signature Custom saxophone aims to bridge the gap between what the player 'demands' in their 'Horn' and what the manufacturer supplies in return.
Unlike many other companies who simply apply a coloured finish to the instrument to give it the appearance of being old, TJ have simply taken the saxophone in it's raw manufactured condition and added the mechanism. So when they say the instrument is RAW...it really is!!
The result?....An instrument with a wide amount of tonal colours, sound options and flexibility which is more personal, more advanced and unlike any other!
The most popular model is the RAW and RAW XS which are designed to 'age' and look like a 'vintage' horn very quickly.
The Raw' XS saxophone undergoes extra (XS) hand buffing to the body and mechanism which as sax players tell us "gives it a stunning and yet realisitic old sax look" compared to the standard 'RAW' sax model which is visibly darker throughout.
