Wooden headjoint with sterling silver tenon
Wood tends to produce a sound that seems warm and mellow when compared to metal. So this headjoint offers a completely different feel and tonal characteristic compared to the usual 925 silver and is well suited especially to baroque pieces.
It also offers optimum conditions for all those, who tend to produce rather colourless sounds with a metal lip plate.
With grenadilla wood it is possible, even at economical air flow, to produce a warm sound with a rich overtone resonance.
Moreover it is a practicable alternative for players who are allergic to nickel or have other skin problems.
