The Best Student ‘First’ Flute Available Today... Just Got Even Better!
NOW BENEFITING FROM AN IMPROVED DESIGN & PREMIUM FEATURES! The only student flute to feature French-style pointed key arms!
This wonderful ‘first’ flute for the new player or those returning to the instrument after a few years away is now benefiting from design improvements that, up to now, have been exclusively reserved for Trevor James ‘Privilege’, ‘Chanson’ & ‘Virtuoso’ step-up and professional flute models.

A Game-Changing 925 Silver Lip Plate and Riser:
The 10XE-P flute has a specially shaped lip plate & riser that gives the new, or returning player, the benefit of having an immediate & free blowing sound, especially in the lower tonal range. Plus, the ‘925’ silver delivers a warmer sound and an extended range of tonal possibilities.
The lower notes are notoriously hard for the new player as it involves most if not all keys being depressed, so the air stream is at times, is right down at the bottom end of the flute. This ‘Shaped’ lip - unique to the TJ 10XE-P - opens up the lower register and gives a huge advantage over other student flutes because it’s not only easier to play in general, but it’s actually easier to get a great tone too.
French-style pointed key arm mechanism: 10XE-P 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.
Professional Pads for a guaranteed consistency of performance:
Your new 10XE-P Flute benefits from the same high-quality Italian ‘Pisoni’ pads that are usually the preserve of much more exclusive and expensive flutes.
Using such high-end pads, and ensuring they are seated correctly in the key ‘cups’, guarantees that sound production is more immediate when each key is depressed. If there is an air leak or gap between the pad and the tone hole, the note will not sound correctly, and all your effort will have been in vain.
Plus, ‘Pisoni’ pads have a significantly longer life span than the inferior pads often found on student instruments, which translates into a better, more reliable tone for a much longer period.
More about the TJ10XE-P
The TJ10x has long been regarded as the leader in the field for new flute players and returners alike. In the last couple of years, the instrument has incorporated a .925 silver lip plate and riser as standard - a feature you would normally find only on step-up flutes. Combined with the shaped lip-plate, this allows the player to achieve a great sound on a beautifully free-blowing instrument.
It’s very common in the manufacturing world, and especially so at the student-end of the market, for many different brands to be made by the same factories, using the same parts, but with a different label applied at the end.
But Trevor James flutes are very different. Our workshops in Taiwan make only TJ flutes and our components have been specially selected by us from all over the world – flute tubing from Japan, springs from France, screws from the USA, pads from Italy, and of course, finishing and final setups in England.
So, you can be sure that your Trevor James 10XE-P flute has been designed, built and delivered with a global vision to create the best possible student instrument.
All instruments are set up and checked in the UK workshop in Kent by specialist technicians.
The TJ10x flute is available in two options:
- Straight headjoint model - This Model – a standard concert flute model
- Curved and straight headjoint model – a 10x flute with both curved and straight headjoints. Ideal for the smaller player as they will start on the curved head and simply swap to the straight headjoint when they are ready.
