Trevor James Student Flute Outfit (TJ5X)

  • £275.00

The Best Beginner's flute available.

If you’re looking for a truly superb ‘first’ instrument, or perhaps you’re returning to the flute after a long break the TJ5X is for you. And the best thing is, it’s incredibly good value.

Designed by the multi award-winning British company, Trevor James ®, the 5x is the younger sibling of the award-winning 10x flute. The 10x was designed to offer the very finest build quality and features at a remarkably affordable price, and this philosophy is carried over into the 5x.


"From the first note, it was clear that this was an amazing flute – the sounds that were coming out of it were more akin to a step-up flute and it was a real joy to play."

Trevor James ® are a specialist wind instrument company, focussing a great amount of their time and effort on encouraging more people to experience the joys of flute and saxophone. It’s with this goal in mind that the 5x flute was created.

Why shouldn't i buy the cheapest flute i can find online?

Many entry-level flutes are simply poor and supplied as ‘white goods’ in a plain box with an obscure brand name from large catalogue stores or online retailers. You can be sure that 99% these flutes have not been checked by a professional flautist since (or probably even before) they were loaded into a shipping container in Asia. This lack of quality and expertise often results in the new player not being able to make progress as well as they should, and in some cases, these entry-level flutes just make playing outright impossible.

No so with the Trevor James 5x Flute Outfit.

A guarantee of quality and playability.

Not only are TJ flutes made in workshops that specialise in Woodwind Instruments, but each Trevor James 5x Flute gets a final inspection and set-up in the TJ technical workshops based in Kent, south-east England.

Your teacher will thank you for turning up to the lesson with a properly functioning instrument! They won’t have to waste any valuable lesson time adjusting or setting up your flute. You’ll be ready to play from the get-go.
Plus your new flute won’t spend its first few weeks of life in a repair shop, at your expense.


"While playing, I found out that it trills a charm – I really cannot understate how lovely it sounds. I was genuinely quite sad to pack it away and send it back!"
