The headjoint of the flute consists of screw, cork, lip plate, riser and headjoint tube. Each of these parts could be manufactured from different materials in order to modify the flute’s sound qualities individually.
Renowned for producing the trademark Altus sound, this headjoint provides vibrant warmth with excellent projection. Its pure tonal center allows the artist great flexibility with an infinite color palette.
With a more rectangular embouchure hole with minimal over and undercutting, this headjoint produces a quick response without sacrificing flexibility or control. The sound is open and free with a darker tonal color.
