Colors, contrast, range, power, evenness, flexibility, détaché: the headjoint is the most sensitive part of the flute. The sound wave is created here and is a major factor in the general sound quality of the instrument.
Our three headjoints models come in a variety of silver and gold combinations, offering a wide range
of possibilities. The embouchure hole's geometry, die-forged before being shaped by hand,
gives each model its personality.
Dynamics & colors
Its oval embouchure hole
provides a precise control of
dynamics and colors.
Finesse & flexibility
The Delta model is distinguished by its
wide front wall enabling a naturally
fine and flexible sound.
Projection & richness
This rectangular riser
is characterised by its projection
and richness of sound.
We generally use two metals to craft our flutes and headjoints: 930 solid silver (93% silver), and 14K rose gold (58.5% gold).
On request, we also use gold alloys from 9k to 18k in a variety of colors, as well as ebony, cocuswood, boxwood and other woods.

The Parmenon stopper
In traditionnal stoppers, airtightness is achieved through a block of cork, a material well known for absorbing vibrations.
The Parmenon stopper seeks to use all the possibilities that this part of the headjoint has to offer by letting it vibrate freely. This produces a richer sound and gives the artist a wider tonal and dynamic palette. All Parmenon flutes are equipped with this patented system.
