Less than three years old, and hardly used, this is in excellent/nearly-new condition. Price includes fitting to any flute.

Jack Frazer Headjoint

Kingwood with silver mounts.

 

Jack Frazer is well-known for superb headjoints in phospher-bronze; here we have a rare wooden headjoint which is in very good condition.

Albert Cooper Headjoint

Silver with gold-plated lip-plate

 

Cooper was perhaps the greatest fllutemaker of his generation, and certainly the most influential. Interest in Cooper's flutes and headjoints continues to increase.

 

Cooper made this headjoint for Oliver Bannister, recently installed at the Royal Opera House, in 1964. Hallmarked and in excellent condition.

 

Comes with a detachable tenon cap, since Bannister played a Rudall Carte with cork tenon. This headjoint can however be fitted to any flute.

Used £2750
