This Ian McLauchlin hardwood grenadilla headjoint is custom made for the Yamaha YPC32 piccolo. (Photographs show the headjoint fitted to the Yamaha instrument and also it fits in the case). Please note it cannot be adjusted to fit other makes of piccolo. This headjoint transforms the tone of the student instrument Yamaha YPC32 completely and is a joy to play. It has a’wave’ or’reform’ shape, giving a more immediate response, and makes articulation easier for many players. This is an affordable way to upgrade the student instrument. It has only been played intermittently, hence excellent condition. Here is some info from the shop which sells these headjoints. Upgrading your piccolo headjoint can vastly improve tone, articulation, response and depth of sound throughout all registers. These headjoints are made from top quality instrument-grade Grenadilla-wood for quality of sound and maximum resistance to cracking. Comments from Professional Flautists on Ian McLauchlan flute headjoints. Adrian Brett, (Player, Teacher, Lecturer) writes. Ian’s headjoints are undoubtedly the best compromise available, combining response advantages of modern development without losing the tonal and dynamic range of the oldest French traditions. (Principle flute, London Philharmonic Orchestra). Ian McLauchlan’s headjoints are a joy to play. I like a head that responds immediately and gives one plenty of freedom to develop the sound. They produce an impressive dynamic range and a well focussed sound. At the same time they allow one to explore lots of other tone colours. I thoroughly recommend a McLauchlan headjoint – it could greatly enhance your tone quality. Michael Hirst (Freelance flute player) writes. For vibrancy of sound and clarity of articulation. Larry Krantz, (Player, Teacher, co-owner of FLUTE) writes. Ian’s headjoint is fitted to my old Powell. Ian was very kind and patient in allowing me to play on dozens of headjoints and he did not draw my attention to his headjoint in any way. When I did find that wonderful headjoint that I had been searching for, for so long, it just happened to be his. I took the headjoint away for a trial period and just one week later was back in the shop to pay for the gem. I find that Ian’s headjoint is extremely responsive in all registers at any dynamic and it possesses an enormously wide range of tone colours.
