Cocuswood headjoint by this superb maker, who learned his craft at Flutemaker's Guild under Angus Harris and Harry Seeley. The lip-plate, hand-carved out of the one piece of wood, features a chamfer beyond the strike edge and an embouchure hole that is of moderate size, giving a sound of depth and focus. Completed with silver mounts, the headjoint is in excellent condition without blemish. Tenon sized to fit a standard modern flute, either wood or silver.
This silver headjoint was made by Ewen McDougall specifically for a wooden Rudall Carte. It brings a strong rich character within the British tradition, adding an alternative to the standard wooden head.
Very good condition.
Haswell hand-made Grenadilla headjoints combine modern playing characteristics with that wonderful vintage wooden flute sound.
