This unique handmade Arista headjoint is made entirely of sterling silver. We have recently selected it during a visit to Juan Arista's workshop near Boston, Massachusetts after trying out a large number of headjoints.
We had previously been impressed with Arista's enchanting flute headjoints, but must conclude that Juan is still getting better over the years. A truly magic headjoint, well worth a visit to our store!
