America's #1 flute specialty house since 1983.
Brad Garner and Michael Geoghegan, owners and makers of Garner headjoints, believe it is necessary to continue to innovate, and strive to improve all aspects of performance related to pitch, sound production and overall ease of play. With the Garner Headjoint, they believe that they are reducing performance obstacles that face flutists around the world. They strive to continue to press the limits of headjoint design in order to enhance your performance.
The Garner Headjoint will improve the pitch throughout the 3-octave range of any flute without having to make major manual adjustments to your embouchure by rolling in or out or by directing or changing your airstream. Try it with a tuner vs. your current headjoint. Garner Headjoints allow easier changes in tone colors, tonguing, jumping of octaves and less splitting or cracking of notes. Produced in a variety of metals, many used for the first time in headjoint design, a Garner Headjoint will make your flute perform with greater ease and will enhance your playing.
Garner BG/TA19: A Tantalum alloy (patent pending), exclusive to the Garner Headjoints, provides a tonal spectrum previously unknown in the flute world until now. This headjoint produces both a sweet and pure quiet sound in all registers and projects an enormous and large sound when needed. The range of dynamics and tone colors are limitless and greatly exaggerated with this headjoint allowing the player to be as expressive as possible. The lip plate, wall, crown and Power Bands (patent pending) are all made of solid sterling silver.
