Abell Low Whistle Flute Headjoint, Mopane
The Abell Low Whistle Headjoint is an end-blown, fipple style headjoint which offers a new and unique voice for the flutist. It is designed to fit any Boehm-system flute and to play comfortably through the full range of the instrument.
The Low Whistle Headjoint orients the flute vertically providing a more balanced and centered position. This orentation relaxes the upper body, opening the lungs and diaphragm. Options for supporting the flute vertically include thumb rests, neck straps and combinations of the two.
The headjoint is also a practical option for flutists who can no longer play the instrument in the horizontal position, or who are unable to form an embouchure.
The Abell Low Whistle Headjoint is manufactured from fully seasoned tropical hardwoods and Sterling silver.
About Abell Flutes
Although many fine wooden flutes have been produced in the past, the recent changes in scale, headjoint design, and technology in manufacturing that have occurred in metal flute making have left these earlier wooden instruments practically obsolete. With Chris Abell’s association with Brannen , he has been able to apply those changes to the wooden instrument and can now offer a flute which includes the current standards of pitch, keywork action, intonation, and fluid tone production with the added attribute of the dark, pungent timbre found in wood. Chris Abell’s flutes and headjoints command a great respect from the flute community for their large range of tonal qualities and handcrafted design.
