    This headjoint turned my 1960 Rudall Carte into a totally different instrument. Strong low notes and a completely in tune and well balanced flute all the way. Thank you.

    I recently purchased the Elan Headjoint for my Yamaha YFL-581H flute. What a difference it has made! I feel that my tone quality is richer, technical passages and soft dynamics are easier, and I am now more in tune when I rehearse with my community band. Thank you.

    I bought this headjoint for use with a late-1970’s Armstrong Emeritus flute. It provides a strong, resonant tone throughout the range of the instrument, and it is easier to control pitch and dynamics, especially in the very high and low ranges. This headjoint is especially nice for solo work. I am very pleased with my purchase.

    I was told about the Elan Headjoint by our private lesson teacher who had a student get one and it change her sound for the better. I was interested in it because of the price and if it was a good as she said it was, then this is a good option for my low income students who can’t really afford to purchase a step up flute. OMG! This headjoint is amazing! I put it on my Trevor James Virtuoso and the tone quality I get is amazing. The ability to have such a big dynamic control is great and the clarity in all three octaves is superb. I am definitely keeping this headjoint and can’t wait to try the sterling silver with 14 karat rose gold bands/riser with my Burkart flute. So happy with this purchase, I have shared this with other flute band directors in my area.

    I must say that the Elan headjoint is probably one the best deals one can get. This headjoint truthfully has the playability of other headjoints costing 3-4 times as much. Its got a very solid tone throughout all registers. The low register is particularily stable. Not only can you play loud and clear and articlate cleanly, it doesnt overblow easily in the lowest octave. The middle register is very clear yet full sounding, and the high register is round and easy to control. 5 stars

    I bought the Elan to use with my Gemeinhardt and have been extremely pleased with it’s playability. Now it is much easier to flip between my saxophones and flute.
    So yes, I highly recommend this headjoint.
