There are many different types of wood that are commonly used for flute-making. The relatively low density of the flute-making woods allows for a starkly different timbre than flutes made of metals. The density of flute-making woods can vary between .5 and 1.3, while the density of silver is about 10.5, the density of pure gold is about 19.3, and the density of platinum is about 21.5. Many flutists find that in more intimate settings, swapping their metal head joint for a wooden head joint can allow them more flexibility in tone colors and a wider range of dynamics. There are more and more professional players deciding that a new wooden flute is now their primary instrument. I offer these flute head joint with the medium level density Woods, which will give you a warmer, more colorful sound. And with the sweetness of a baroque flute and with a greater range of intonation, allowing for fine-tuning. The ability to produce a sound similar to a baroque flute combined with Bohm mechanics makes the experience of playing much more fascinating and amazing. Unlike classic wooden HJ this Head Joint is much easier to play and does not give the usual resistance of wooden HJ due to the unique undercutting of the embrasure hole.
