To have a flute at this price with a solid silver lip plate and riser is truly amazing. It's clear that Trevor James understands the need to invest positively in the instrument that could influence your career. The silver lip plate opens up a whole new range of tonal characteristics for your playing, especially for advancing students.
Unlike other student flutes, the Trevor James Privilege comes with French pointed arms as standard. These arms not only increase the stability of the instrument, but also enhance the overall quality of the mechanism. The Privilege also comes with closed keys which are better for learning the basics of performance.
Assured quality control
When designing the Privilege, Trevor James wanted to ensure that they would capture the excitement of new players. By streamlining the manufacturing and reducing costs where possible, Trevor James was able to produce the Privilege to a much higher standard than similarly priced flutes. During this process, they made sure that they never compromised performance quality, ensuring that you still get a high-quality Trevor James instrument. And for even more peace of mind, the Privilege is double-checked by UK technicians to make sure everything is in working order.
To ensure your new Privilege flute looks fantastic, Trevor James plates it three times. Quite often with student instruments, the plating can start to come off - this is why Trevor James plates the Privilege three times. Firstly, the nickel silver flute is plated with copper. This copper layer helps the second and third layer of silver plate to stick to the flute to create a gorgeous finish. This method of plating provides a rock-solid finish which is more durable than most student flutes.
