Headjoint Styles


Classic version of a modern headjoint style with moderate degrees of overcutting and undercutting. Slightly increased amount of resistance generally works well for those who "coax" the sound from the flute and direct their airstream when playing.


Modern style design with an open, warm sound. Works well for flutists with a fast airstream and very relaxed embouchure. Plenty of harmonics and projection characterize this headjoint cut.


Modern style headjoint with a generous amount of "spin." Consistent tone and response throughout the registers. Designed for flutists with a very fast airstream and who seek a powerful sound with a large, controlled dynamic range.


Modern style headjoint with a well-defined rectangular shaped embouchure hole. Generally works best for flutists who direct their airstream far downward with a wide aperture.

A modern version of a traditional style headjoint. Characterized by a dark sound, generous resistance, increased depth, as well as a rich tonal palette. Works well for those who use their air-speed to direct the sound.
