Ellis-Korb headjoint for silver Boehm flute, Cumberland ebonite

$1,500.00 (temporarily unavailable)
Check back in a few minutes to see if it's still in stock

Ellis-Korb headjoint for Boehm flute, Cumberland Ebonite with threaded tenon for precision fit to your silver flute. Sterling silver bore rings, classic embouchure cut. Waterproof, beautiful and spectacularly resonant, with superior projection and articulation, specially designed to bring easier access to your third octave notes.

The Ellis-Korb headjoint, in both wood and ebonite, is thin-walled and elegant, and blends well with the natural lines of the flute. Too many of the wooden headjoints that are available tend to be very clunky (they look a bit like a log attached to the head of the flute!) but the delicate profile of the Ellis-Korb headjoint looks and feels like a natural extension of the Boehm flute.

Headjoint ships with a selection of different sized tenons, all threaded to fit the headjoint. Player selects the tenon that best fits their flute and returns the extra tenons in a pre-paid shipping container. Ensures that this headjoint will fit your flute, regardless of make and model.

Cherry rim blown flute, Key of F# (right-handed)

$300.00 (out of stock)

Cherry, Key of F# (pentatonic major scale). This is the same flute as the Basketmaker, only without a thumb hole (which is very tricky on a flute this big). This is the flute that Scott August plays in his amazing piece “Quiet Journey” which you can see below.

PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE ORDERING. This flute is not covered by my normal return policy. This is a very large flute and at least half of the players who try it cannot reach the finger holes comfortably. I will provide you detailed information to help you determine if you can play it, but once it is determined that you can reach the flute . I’m sorry to be so strict about this, but this has been a problem in the past and has obliged me to alter my policy. I get a lot of requests for this flute, but be forewarned that it is a stretch, even for tall players.

Black Ebonite Shakuhachi, 1.8 Key of D

$900.00 (out of stock)

Silky, shimmering black ebonite shakuahchi! This is the actual flute that Zac Zinger used in his YouTube video comparing different shakuhachi materials. See video below.

Weight: 450grams (16 oz.). For players unfamiliar with ebonite, I strongly encourage you to read my blog entry on the subject. It is a truly amazing material for woodwinds of all kinds, and it is all-natural (not plastic or synthetic). Waterproof, stable and demonstrating superior acoustic properties.

Making ebonite is as much art as science, and colored ebonite is very expensive (but worth it!), and the finishing process is much more labor intensive than wood. The extra cost for materials and labor is reflected in the price of these flutes.

Listen to the incomparable Zac Zinger perfrom the traditional Kinko style honkyoku piece “Takiochi”! The sound sample is just above the embedded video (they are sort of close together).
