Changing the headjoint on your flute can be a useful way of customising the instrument to your liking, improving tonal depth, articulation, flexibility and response. The headjoint is the voicebox of the flute, and could be said to be the most important part of the flute. Two key factors in sound production are the material the headjoint is made from and, more importantly, the "cut".
Searching for the perfect headjoint can become an incurable disease! Many people know that they are unhappy with their present headjoint but don't know why; they then end up trying hundreds of heads and never really know which is an improvement and which isn't. Make sure you know which areas of your sound or response are lacking, and seek advice if you're not sure; then concentrate on headjoints which improve these aspects without losing the things you DO like. Second opinions are always nice, but remember that it is YOU who has to play on the headjoint, so don't choose one that you aren't happy with just because someone else likes the sound!
