Here at Dirk’s workshop, custom made headjoints are the specialty, each made using a combination of sterling silver, 9ct gold or 14ct gold. These are each individually handcrafted, designed to make the flute play across the full range with a clear and powerful voice. Gold is favoured for the riser and lip plate, silver is also very desirable. Being individually handcrafted, each headjoint will have unique properties. The idea is the player can come to the workshop and try a selection of headjoints to find a piece that will take their playing and sound to another level.
