This is a brand new TM Custom tenor sax with rolled tone holes and no high F#, serial number 00820. The tenor was recently hand selected by Saxquset and is ready to ship out in perfect playing condition from our shop in Saint Louis.
The TM features a true rounded tone hold and not a soldered ring. By utilizing a seamless rolled tone hole and soldering the bell to body brace the entire horn responds faster and resonates freer. Unlike some saxophone manufactures who offer rounded tone holes or soldered tone rings, each TM Custom is gone through with great care to ensure each tone hole is level. When the rolled tone holes are perfectly level they increase the surface area of the pad seat, which in turn creates a better seal and an extremely stable long lasting set-up.
Every instrument is hand assembled and set up with the extreme attention to detail by Mr. Jones himself. No less than 24 hours of painstaking time and detail is put into the final set-up of each instrument to ensure perfection.
Years of product testing and research went into the TM Custom with the end result of a lush vintage sound. These horns play with a warm core and fast response to air flow. Whether you are looking to play with a more intense focus or a mellow sub-tone the TM Custom’s fast response allows for an unbelievable amount of flexibility. Intonation and the consistency of timbre across all registers is outstanding on these tenors, even up into the extreme upper register.
