Mancke Mopane Wood Flute Headjoint with Silver Tenon

MANCKE standard size wooden headjoints fit Powell and Yamaha wood flutes and pair well with most metal flutes. MANCKE wooden headjoints offer the beautifully warm and intimate sound of wooden flutes with the projection, response and control characteristic of all MANCKE headjoints. Response and resistance are finely balanced to make a wide range of dynamics possible, allowing for flexibility and reliable response. MANCKE selects and ages the woods used for headjoints very carefully to ensure uniformity, reliability, and durability.


Mopane elicits a strong and projecting, yet sweet, sound. Similar to Grenadilla in depth, feel and clear articulation response, it is very resonant and powerful with impressive projection. Mopane imparts a darker quality in the upper register that emerges from the strong, rich lower register, creating an overall rich flute sound.

This exotic wood is from Southern Africa. Its appearance is dark reddish-brown, with black stripes, and tends to darken with age.
