the vertical headjoint
Simply put it on your flute
The vertical flute headjoints lets you play your flute vertically, as if it were a clarinet or recorder. This design allows flute players with the more severe physical problems to still play the flute.
Simply put the vertical head on your own flute and you have a vertical flute.
The flute is supported by the right thumb, using a large thumbrest, and the left hand, using a left hand support. Both were specially designed for this purpose. The flute is not held at exactly 90degrees, but slightly to the right of the player. This is neccesary to reduce pronation of the right wrist.
Lush and warm sound
The Vertical flute headjoint is handmade in 925/000 silver. The crown has a stunning malachite stone inlaid. The bore taper is unique for this type of headjoint and deals with the acoustical compensation for the curvature effects.
The result is a precise and reliable intonation. Most important of all, the handcut embouchure hole delivers a lush, warm sound delivering easy coloring and generous dynamics.
