Our Description

Ian McLauchlan makes flute headjoints by hand on our premises, and in addition to the styles we stock, he can produce custom headjoints in consultation with you to develop your perfect flute combination.

All McLauchlan headjoints are supplied with a medium-weight crown for enhanced projection, and a Dual-Chamber stopper which enhances resonance.

Style options

Cut 1: This free-blowing headjoint gives good projection in all three registers, with a wide range of tone colours. All difficult areas, such as middle E, high G# and A, are well-matched, giving a truly even sound throughout all registers.

Cut 2: The extra resistance of this headjoint gives a very stable top octave, especially when playing quietly. Good projection and a wide range of colours are a feature. Articulation is clean and even throughout all registers.
