Our Description

Robert Bigio:

"I have developed my headjoints over many years to produce a rich, dark sound that blends well with other instruments yet is capable of enough power for solo playing. Most of my headjoints are made of wood (usually African Blackwood, but occasionally other woods), although I do also make headjoints in silver, gold and platinum. I have made wooden headjoints with silver or gold inserts in the embouchure, as well as silver and gold headjoints with wooden lip- plates.

My thinned headjoints are made from one piece of wood, with the lip- plate carved by hand. I now make thinned wooden headjoints for alto flutes, and I continue to make wooden headjoints for piccolos"
