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.
