"...On the specs alone it's an impressive horn. The build quality, the setup and the whole package adds up to a very credible pro-quality instrument - and when you factor in the feel, the tone and the response I think it's fair to say that the RAW XS raises the standard for the 21st century alto. .....Stephen Howard...Author of the Haynes Saxophone Manual
Experience the Next Level of Saxophone Artistry: Introducing the TJ Signature Custom Series.
As an advanced and professional saxophonist, you're familiar with the nuances of different metals and finishes. The Signature Custom saxophone is here to bridge the gap between your demanding expectations and what manufacturers typically offer.
Enter the extraordinary 'RAW' and 'RAW XS' models, born in 2012 after extensive testing, research, and discussions with saxophonists worldwide. These instruments were designed for those seeking an authentic vintage sound and an instrument that exudes a beautifully aged aesthetic.
Unlike other companies that merely apply a colored finish, we've taken the saxophone in its raw manufactured state and added the mechanisms. When we say it's RAW, we mean it!
The result? An instrument that unleashes a vast array of tonal colors, sound possibilities, and unrivaled flexibility. It's a truly personal and advanced saxophone that stands apart from the rest.
The RAW and RAW XS models have become instant favorites, offering a fast-track to the vintage look you desire. The 'Raw' XS undergoes meticulous hand buffing, giving the body and mechanisms a stunningly realistic old sax appearance, while the standard 'RAW' model showcases a distinct and captivating dark finish throughout.
Indulge in a saxophone experience like no other with the TJ Signature Custom series. Elevate your playing to new heights, embrace the vintage allure, and make your mark on the stage with an instrument that's as exceptional as you are.

Sax Assembly Guide
- Put the neck strap around your neck.
- Take the main body of the sax from its case holding it firmly by the bell.
- Hook the neck strap on to the ring positioned about half way down the back of the body.
- Ensure the neck screw is loosened and insert the crook, which should line up with the neck strap ring.
- Tighten the screw so that the crook is secure.
- Apply a little cork grease to the cork (re-do once a week) and push the mouthpiece on to the cork with the opening facing downwards.
It is vital that when you have finished playing your instrument that you either clean it correctly or put it away in it’s case or place the saxophone on to a saxophone stand. Most of the repair damage we see in our workshops comes from players who have simply laid their saxophone down on a chair whilst they have ‘nipped’ out for a coffee or for lunch. Saxophones can be easily damaged!
All our included sax slings come with a non metal sax hook attached. The choice of sax slings is vast however we recommed you do not use a sax sling with a bare metal hook (unless it has a non metaillic coating over it) as over a period of time, the metal hook could possibly cause some wear to the sling ring which is located on the rear of the saxophone.
