Description of Item:
This headjoint was made on March 20, 2018 by Reiner Lafin himself. Crown, stopper, riser, lip-plate, and "Adler wings" are all 14k rose gold. Tube is 10k rose gold. The tenon has not been resized (is as Mr Lafin made it - sized small enough for gold flutes). It is his very latest cut, the "Julie". You can see some famous flautists including James Galway playing and discussing this new cut on the Lafin facebook page videos. The condition is near-perfect: there are minor marks from playing it over the last two months, but no dents and no deep scratches. Comes in presentation box. For me, it plays with a strong centred sound which is very even in all registers. Having played it in a large Symphony Orchestra as well as smaller chamber groups, I found it very easy to blend, it was plenty loud enough to project in Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune...and the top octave especially surprised me as it retains a lot of colour in the sound - I often find headjoints get "thin" higher up. I find it easy to keep the pitch down when playing loudly high up. So this is an unusual headjoint, made by one of the most highly-regarded makers himself in his latest design which he and others consider his best. Headjoints from Reiner Lafin himself are sought after, rarely obtainable, and often carry a premium.
