However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

The '88 Horn

1988 saw the initial idea for a saxophone from Trevor James, following great popularity from their flutes. The aim was to produce an instrument that was free blowing, had plenty of character and a well designed instrument constructed to great standards. This is a 25 year anniversary of the original, which keeps much of the same design and adds some visual and performance "twists".

'13 Features on the '88

The '88 saxophone has many innovative features. A new 4 point brace system has been made to give optimum strength and rigidity to vulnerable areas of the saxophone. The crook on the TJ sax has been rifled to produce a better airflow through the instrument. This in turn produces a bigger and bolder sound. To celebrate UK manufacture, the Union Jack has been added to the octave key.

Champagne Frost Finish

The '88 saxophone has been finished in a champagne frosted finish which is made in a different manner to most lacquer finishes. The finish is a water based coat which, once baked, hardens to create a frosted finish.


"The new Trevor James Horn '88 offers the same classic warmth and breadth of tone of the standard gold lacquer model, but with a twist - the sound is more powerful and a fair bit brighter!"


  • Body Finish: Frosted Champagne Lacquer
  • Buttons: Smokey Grey Pearls
  • Crook: Rifled with Union Jack Badge
