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.
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.
