VIRTUOSO Placing unbridled dynamic possibilities at your fingertips:

Experienced and professional players need look no further than Trevor James Virtuoso flutes. With 925 silver headjoints, bodies and footjoints, as well as numerous other high-quality features, Virtuoso flutes are the perfect choice if you demand dynamics, colour, a deep timbre and a wide tonal range from your instrument.

Ideal for players progressing through Advanced to Professional Grade 8 and beyond.


 

Own your sound:

Great flute performance is as much about personal touch as it is about fantastic technical ability. Trevor James Virtuoso flutes feature 925 silver headjoints - available in all professional options - as well as 925 silver bodies and footjoint tubes for a truly stunning instrument. They excel at delivering the subtleties of varied embouchures and tonal complexity, essential for you to add that all-important personal flare to your performances.


 

 

925 Silver A dynamic & exciting tonal palette:

The combination of a 925 Silver headjoint, 925 Silver body and 925 Silver footjoint tube results in a truly wonderful sound. With this precious metal fully enveloping the instrument  not just the headjoint you can expect a genuinely noticeable difference in tone, and more mature timbre and, most importantly, an extremely even flow of air through the entire body of the flute.

This Virtuoso flute features a CT headjoint (Traditional Design)

This headjoint has a traditional flat lip plate with a traditionally cut embouchure hole. This gives excellent tonal colour options.

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 Virtuoso 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.


 

Headjoint crown options. Heavy-weighted engraved & Yellow Pear wood:

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 Virtuoso flutes feature a heavy-weighted engraved crown as standard, plus the addition of a Yellow Pear wood crown for a wider array of sound possibilities.


 

French-style pointed key arm mechanism:

Virtuoso 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.
