Our Description

Dana Sheridan is widely regarded as one of the finest flute headjoint makers. Originally from the United States, he has worked with the Wm. S. Haynes, Verne Q. Powell (becoming manager in 1981) and Brannen Brothers flute companies before introducing Sheridan flutes and headjoints in 1982.

Sheridan headjoints are meticulously hand-built to produce an even, responsive sound in all registers. They offer a wide range of tonal and dynamic possibilities with stable pitch, ease of articulation and provide a balanced resistance to produce a warm, flexible sound. The addition of a 14k red lip-plate and riser lends a richer and darker quality to this sound. Very popular among professional flute players.

General Condition

This headjoint is in good condition, although it has some very minor scuffs and tarnishing to the tenon.  

This item is sold “as seen”. It has not been checked in our workshop prior to sale, and this is reflected in the selling price.
