Product Reviews: Trevor James 31CF "Chanson" Flute
Share your thoughts with other customers
I had a Trevor James flute as my student flute but as I progressed I needed a better flute with a silver headjoint. I tried some flutes over at justflutes and this one was by far the best, it had a nice deep tone on the lower register and it was not difficult to obtain some sweet sounding higher notes. The dynamics in the top register don't require too much effort and playing quietly is not a problem.
The middle register is good, not too airy, and pitching the notes is easy. The mechanism is great, there's not much clicking or sticking with the keys. The only problem is that it marks easily but I'm ok with that as long an I try not to scratch it.
I would recommend this flute, buying it has hugely improved my playing.
“Cantabile III Flute”
This was a Christmas present so early days yet. This instrument was recommended by my daughter's flute teacher to take her into her Grade 7 exam and forwards and hasn't disappointed. A noticable difference between this and her old Yamaha starter flute. No negatives yet! Very please with the purchase and the service provided by justflutes.com
“Upgrading from learner flute.”
After playing the Trevor J James XX for a couple of years and no longer being happy with my tone decide to buy by myself a christmas present.
Want a silver head, open holes and a b foot joint to extend my range, since I dont want to buy another flute for while.
The finish to the flute is fabulous, on the down side the head joint marks very easily and now has a small scratch from a ring. Moving from a silver plate head joint to a silver head joint was easier than I thought and the flute has improved my tone. The open holes dont seem to have made a difference apart from being able to feel the air vibrate as you play. Simular to a wooden folk flute which I also play.
Overall very please with my purchase and hope to get many a happy tune from it.
