Here's a pic of the bass that Emerson Deford made for for me a number of years ago (his last one before retiring) and the mod (new riser and plate) by Eva Kingma.
Haven't got it back yet, she sent the pic from Holland.
It looks like a lot more air will get in with the new setup

Got the head today.
Despite not playing bass flute for almost a year it sings!
Sounds kinda like my concert flute down an octave.
Nice edge, great intonation, faster articulation and way louder.
Feels like it users less air and generally easier to play.

Still working on getting the centered embouchure that i want.
Twice as much air at 1/2 the speed as a concert flute.
