Geoghegan Company has patented a method of assembly that makes the use of metals like niobium possible in headjoint production. Niobium, because of its high density and hardness, offers the flutist many more tone colors and a greater variance in volume.
Transform your flute!
Provides a full range of tone colors and dynamics without the darkness or extreme edge that the Tantalum can produce. The Niobium is quick, light, and responsive. It is Tantalum’s athletic brother, lighter in weight and a little easier to handle. The tube is made of niobium. The lip plate, wall, crown, and Power Bands are made of solid sterling silver.
WOW. The intonation and clarity that the Niobium produces is flawless! It is an absolute game changer. I thank you and my Muramatsu flute thanks you!
