We are pleased and proud to offer for sale this unique silver headjoint, hand-made collaboratively by two of our top flute technicians. An easy-blowing embouchure hole gives a full and warm sound, making this an attractive addition to any flute. The workmanship, as one would expect, is of the highest quality, and the headjoint is fitted with a delightful engraved crown.
Condition is as-new, the headjoint having hardly been used.
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.
Our A & T Haswell hand-made Grenadilla headjoints combine modern playing characteristics with that wonderful vintage wooden flute sound.
All our headjoints are thinwall to give maximum resonance. The embouchure cut tends to be somewhat resistant, demanding more from the player and rewarding with greater control and a subtler range of sounds. As well as the standard unlined headjoint, we also make a version lined with a silver sleeve.
