S. Kotel headjoints are made from African Blackwood, Pink Ivory, Boxwood, Oro, Malcura, Cocobolo, Rosewood, Kingwood and many other exotic woods for the Boehm flute. All metal parts are Sterling Silver. Each head joint has .014 tenon and comes in an individual case and there is a two year guarantee on the wood.
The combination of different wood species with a lip plate made of African Blackwood allows you to explore the variety of color and acoustic potential of these woods, while having the advantage of a dense lip plate. This idea is similar to that of having a silver headjoint with gold lip plate and riser. S. Kotel headjoints are designed to have greater resonance for optimal projection, as well as easy articulation throughout the entire range of the flute, and the quickest response.
