I look forward to getting my headjoint.  I enjoyed the Alexa Still CD but the recordings of Aralee Dorough & Moshe Epstein were brilliant. I have play them several times. They certainly demonstrate the possibilities of the UpRite headjoint very favorable indeed.

 

GV wrote …

I cannot tell you how happy I am with the UpRite! The sound is great – with lots of colors with an easy high register and good response. My shoulders, neck, and left arm and hand are freer than they have ever been. Technical combinations which were always a problem for me (due to tension in the neck and left hand) are now so much easier to deal with. I just don't know how to thank you…

 

KJ wrote …

Just want to tell you again how thrilled I am at the prospect of the incredible headjoint that makes my flute sound so good and play so easily.

SS wrote …

Still loving my headjoint, after all of these years.

 

SS wrote …

It's time to re-insure my headjoint and I'm sure, with the price of gold as it is, that the value on mine needs to be adjusted upwards. Its #188, 14K gold that I bought in 1984. Still love it…

 

SA wrote …

I play a Drelinger headjoint and have since I was in grad school (on version four now, in regular use, and I also have a Drelinger picc headjoint and a wooden headjoint by Drelinger)…Obviously I am a happy customer …

 

ZT wrote …

I have owned a total of four Drelingers…I have never been disappointed with what he has sent me.

 

TD wrote …

My students and I have all been very happy with our Drelinger headjoints…What is unique about Sandy's approach is his ability to hear what the flutist  wishes for in his sound and to find a headjoint that achieves that for the player. He brings a set of headjoints that mix the variables…The process for me is like going to a great tailor instead of buying off the rack.

 

HM wrote …

Thank you very much for taking the time to work on my headjoint with me. The advice you gave me for playing the headjoint has made all of the difference!

 

RN wrote …

Thank you for your friendship, support and belief in me. Your work and artistry has helped my efforts enormously.
