The flute headjoint is one of the most important components of the flute, providing the greatest contribution to the flute's tonal quality. All North Bridge flutes feature a sterling silver headjoint handmade in the USA by flute artisan Chris McKenna. For over 30 years, Chris McKenna has been crafting some of the finest flute headjoints available. The art of creating a flute head joint requires many years of experience, bringing together a blend of technology, craftsmanship and artistry. The McKenna headjoint is designed and crafted to be both responsive and flexible while offering superb projection and control, making it easier to hit high notes and perform at softer volumes.
