Robert Dick Glissando Headjoint
The Glissando Headjoint® gives flutists an entirely new mode of
expression, bringing the instrument closer to the sound of the human
voice. It is a telescoping headjoint, with a high performance
contemporary cut silver headjoint sliding inside a carrier tube! Two
“wings” extend from the lip plate and comfortably embrace the flutist’s
cheeks. Moving the flute to your right slides the headjoint from its
“home position” (all the way in) and extends the length of the flute.
Glissandi can be made both to and from every note on the flute! With the
Glissando Headjoint® in its “home position,” the flute is a traditional
Boehm flute and all repertoire can be played as if a traditional
headjoint was in use. The Glissando Headjoint® can be positioned to tune
the flute just like any other headjoint.
