Flute Lab Vertical Headjoint
The Vertical Headjoint allows flutists who thought they would never play the flute again to do so. Simply put the vertical head on your own flute and you have a vertical flute. The flute is supported by the right thumb, using a large thumbrest, and the left hand, using a left hand support. Both were specially designed for this purpose. As you can see, the flute is not held at exactly 90 degrees, but slightly to the right of the player. This is most comfortable to the player and the design of the headjoints takes this into account. Some players prefer a carrying strap. For this, a ring must be added to the bottom of the flute which clamps around the foot joint at one end and has a ring for the hook at the other side.

The Vertical flute headjoint is handmade in 925/000 silver. The crown has a stunning malachite stone inlaid. The bore taper is unique for this type of headjoint and deals with the acoustical compensation for the curvature effects.
The result is a precise and reliable intonation. Most important of all, the handcut embouchure hole delivers a lush, warm sound delivering easy coloring and generous dynamics.
