Improve the sound and response of your present or new flute headjoint:
An idea originally proposed in the 1960's, the replacement of the traditional cork stopper
with zirconium continues to be an ongoing endeavor by Tanzer Headjoint Company.
How? Simply replace the cork stopper with a custom fit zirconium crown and stopper.
The increased clarity and resonance is amazing!
Why? Traditional cork damages the tone and response of the flute by dampening and
hindering the vibration of the headjoint. Through a series of prior experiments, it has been
found that zirconium, a metal belonging to Group 4 of the Periodic Table of Elements, is
the best metal, overall, to achieve this purpose because of its power, clarity, and
resonance. This problem is remedied by replacing the cork with a cylindrical metal stopper
(zirconium) held in place by a rubber O-ring.
Tanzer Headjoint Company will custom fit a zirconium crown & stopper to any flute
headjoint, allowing it to perform at its optimum capacity. The cost of $295.00
includes custom fitting, installation, and a money back guarantee.
