Baroque Flute Headjoint

  • If the wood cracks during transport (which has never happened to me), we will cover the return transport as well as sending a new head to your home.

  • Perfect tenon fit is crucial for optimal resonance. Although transverse flutes have a similar inside diameter (19mm), the thickness of the tube varies. The Lavoie head tenons are perfect for flutes with tenons with an external diameter of 19.7 mm***. Your technician can easily adjust the post if necessary. If the diameter of your flute is larger, you can simply add metallic adhesive paper** to the tenon of the head. If you cannot consult a technician and the diameter of your flute is too small, we can have the tenon adjusted for your specific model by a specialist technician at an additional cost.
