| Glass instruments have long fascinated players, listeners and instrument makers. The French flutemaker, Claude Laurent, maker to Napoleon and King Louis XVIII, was renowned for his crystal flutes. Richard Strauss wrote for the crystal flute which he considered highly superior for orchestral use. |
Now this unique sound is captured by our full lead crystal headjoint. We've reintroduced the charm of the crystal flute while retaining the capabilities of the modern silver headjoint. Its timbre is deep and complex, giving the strength to carry out and the subtle nuance to blend evenly. Throughout its range it delivers a truly beautiful sound with consistent reliability.
The silver tenon fits easily to any make of flute. We invite you to try this headjoint for yourself.
