Our Description

Headjoint cuts


This model has a rectangular shape and is modern in its design and response. It speaks easily through the full range of the flute and produces a bright, open sound. This style is designed to play comfortably in large ensembles and orchestral work, though it is not limited only to those venues.


The Oval model has a slightly smaller, elliptical shaped ambouchure and is designed especially for small ensemble and chamber music where a more intimate sound is required. This cut also plays easily across the full range of the flute and produces a very clear, centered tone with an especially dark and pungent quality in the lower registers.

About Abell Flutes

Although many fine wooden flutes have been produced in the past, the recent changes in scale, headjoint design, and technology in manufacturing that have occurred in metal flute making have left these earlier wooden instruments practically obsolete. With Chris Abell’s association with Brannen , he has been able to apply those changes to the wooden instrument and can now offer a flute which includes the current standards of pitch, keywork action, intonation, and fluid tone production with the added attribute of the dark, pungent timbre found in wood. Chris Abell’s flutes and headjoints command a great respect from the flute community for their large range of tonal qualities and handcrafted design.


  • Fully handmade headjoint
  • Aged Grenadilla-wood with .925 solid rings
  • Thickwall headjoint with standard embouchure
  • Available in two distinct cuts: Standard or Oval
  • This headjoint can be fitted to most makes of flute. Please note that it may need to be adjusted to fit your instrument. There is no charge for this.
