Can anyone recommend headjoints comparabel or a little better than the EC by yamaha.Has anyone tried the k series by yamaha can't find one?
True.I recently bought a Dana Sheridan. I really like it.
But it may not be everybody's cup of tea.
Mine was this year, $1700, but by the time it arrived here with exchange rate, shipping, tax and customs it was $3176!!
"...They were amazingly the same..."
That's encouraging. I always wonder what happens to the relative-duds of hand-crafted items, especially for flutes, when the hand-crafting of the embouchure hole is almost everything.
It makes me wonder even more when a top brand flute maker puts out a cheaper model with Chinese or Taiwanese body and local, USA, supposedly top pro head.
What happens to the not quite so good heads that the apprentice makes. I doubt that they are melted down for another try.
Still cynically wondering.
I'm still convinced that Selmer used to send their most badly adjusted saxes to the antipodes, with keys wedged closed, supposedly hoping they would magically adjust themselves in transit.
