This full sterling silver Yamaha head joint is from their 300 series flutes and is made of Sterling Silver (.925). It allows the advancing player to upgrade his/her flute without having to purchase a new instrument. The effect of a Sterling Silver head joint on sonority is large. Extra robustness and a much more interesting tone palette are the results.
About Yamaha Headjoints
Yamaha is the world's largest and probably most well-known manufacturer of musical instruments. It is part of a large industrial conglomerate that makes a very diverse range of products, including motorbikes and electronics. However, Yamaha was founded in 1887 as an organ- and piano manufacturer by Torakusu Yamaha, and the origin of Yamaha is still visible in the logo, which consists of three tuning forks.
Due to the enormous size of the company, it is possible for Yamaha to continuously invest big in research, development and new production techniques. As a result, we see that each Yamaha instrument, from student model to the most exclusive instruments is of excellent, uniform quality, and keeps its value very well. For years, Yamaha has set the quality standard for many wind instruments.
The silver Yamaha headjoints that we offer can be a very interesting and attractive option if you own a good quality student flute (e.g. a Yamaha 200 series flute) and are looking for a step up.
