SPECIAL EDITION HEADJOINTS
Special Edition headjoints are supplied in these superb boxes handmade especially for us by Chris Raven. Constructed from solid walnut with an ebony inlay, they are the perfect complement to our Sfumato headjoints.
Elegant, with soft flowing profiles,
our new SPECIAL EDITION Sfumato headjoints
are individually sculpted by T.H., who brings to bear
all her skills as a fine artist.
These modern sleek headjoints are exceptionally resonant, and feature
our preferred slightly resistant embouchure cut, encouraging a unique partnership to develop between wood flesh and air.
Fitted with our own modern-style O-ring stopper made from African Blackwood faced with a silver disc, each Special Edition headjoint combines traditional construction with innovation.
...the form is left a little vague, as though disappearing into a shadow... this is Leonardo’s famous invention which the Italians call ‘Sfumato’... the blurred outline that allows one form to merge with another and always leaves something to our imagination....
