Step up with Privilege flutes:

Trevor James Privilege flutes are designed specifically to ensure your transition - or ‘step-up’ - from a blossoming student to an experienced intermediate player is as easy, smooth and enjoyable as it should be.

Privilege flutes are extremely free blowing instruments. Available with a range of features and essential options needed to help you master new techniques and see you breeze through your Intermediate Grades 4-6.


Why choose a Privilege flute?

Headjoint options.

The headjoint is the most important part of the flute as it’s where the sound originates. So, a nice, shiny new instrument with a sub-standard headjoint will have substandard playability. This is why Trevor James have worked continuously to create the very best quality headjoints for their flutes and are proud to offer more headjoint options than any other student to conservatory flute manufacturer.

Trevor James understands how these options have their own distinct characteristics and can therefore make a big difference to your learning and playing experience, and so offer Privilege flutes with both CT & CS options.

This Privilege flute features a CS headjoint (Enhanced Design)

On the CS headjoint, the shoulders of the lip plate have been raised to facilitate a very free-blowing instrument. This makes it a little easier for you to explore the instrument’s lower registers and also offers enhanced dynamic possibilities.


925 Silver Lip Plate & Riser:

Privilege flutes feature 925 silver lip plates & risers to give you the benefit of having an immediate & free blowing sound, especially in the lower tonal range. Using this precious metal helps to open up the lower register and gives a huge advantage over other intermediate level flutes because it’s not only easier to play in general, but it’s actually easier to get a great tone too. Plus, the ‘925’ silver delivers a warmer sound and an extended range of tonal possibilities. 


Hand over-cutting and undercutting of the embouchure hole:

The embouchure hole is a very important component of any flute as it’s where air is initially blown into the tubing. This is entry point for the instrument’s energy source.
If the embouchure hole is imperfect or uneven, the air cannot flow into the instrument smoothly which ultimately results in an imperfect and uneven tone.

Many flute headjoints feature machine-produced embouchure holes – which although functional – do not necessarily allow the flute to perform at its optimal level. Machine-production can leave rough and misshapen edges that mean flutes don’t sound their very best.

A perfectly cut embouchure hole requires an expert eye and human hands to ‘over-cut and under-cut’ the exact angles, smooth any rough edges and fill-in any irregular shapes.

The good news is that all Trevor James Privilege flutes feature hand over-cut and undercut embouchure holes. This extra attention to detail ensures that from the first time you blow into your new TJ Flute, you can be confident that every subtle nuance will be within your full control.


French-style pointed key arm mechanism:

Privilege flutes feature French-style pointed key arms.

The key-arms are the parts of a flute which connect the keys to the body of the flute. Traditionally reserved for much more expensive flutes, French-style pointed key arms feature an arm that extends to the centre of the key and helps to strengthen the mechanism, making for a stronger and tighter key placement, which means no leaks and squeaks

These key arms also result in excellent note intonation; reward speedy playing; and aid the development of faster techniques - so you’ll be well-placed to take on those more challenging pieces.


Silver-plated beauty, that will last:

You can be safe in the knowledge that Privilege flutes have a triple plated finish on their tubing. 

To ensure that the sliver-plating on your TJ flute will last a lifetime – unlike inferior instruments- Trevor James developed their own method of coating flutes. After much research they discovered that by copper-plating the nickel tubing first, the subsequent two (yes two!) layers of silver-plate are rock solid, giving you the most durable finish of any step-up flute. 


Heavy weight engraved crown as standard:

The crown is another piece of a flute’s anatomy that plays a crucial role in the quality of the sound produced. It acts as a plug that seals the top end of the flute and directs air – or the sound, if you like – down the flute past the keys.

A heavier weighted crown offers greater air resistance and therefore centres and focuses the airflow down the length of the flute more uniformly and efficiently - which results in a more resonant and responsive instrument. This is particularly important as your repertoire requires you to retain optimum tone when playing ever more tricky pieces. 

All Trevor Privilege flutes feature a heavy-weighted engraved crown as standard – so there’ll be no need to look for a crown upgrade anytime soon.


Setup in the UK by experienced TJ Technicians:

And don’t forget, each Trevor James Privilege Flute is crafted to exacting standards with the best components from around the world, with a final hand set-up in our UK technical workshops based in Kent, south-east England.
