Pinchbeck is a form of brass with a typical mix ratio of 89% copper and 11% zinc. This combination gives a warm, rich tone. Pinchbeck is less dense than silver, and responds easily with clear articulation. As it is an unlacquered finish, this headjoint will gain a patina over time.
After training as a silversmith in London's Hatton Garden jewellery centre, Mike became interested in the construction of flutes. With an incredible eye for detail, his flutes are precisely designed and put together.
We work in close association with Mike Allen to develop new and exciting products for flute. Mike is one of a handful of flutesmiths who hand draws all his own tubing, using a method which preserves the original molecular structure of the metal. This gives his headjoints and flutes a distinct sound.
