I am new to this site. I was doing a web search for the best flute head joints and one hit was on 8notes. I tried to reply and got the message it was closed. So here's my $.02. I have the following flutes and headjoints.
Powell custom made B foot SN 6788 made 7/18/1984,
Bonneville plated C foot SN 2172,
Bonneville silver C foot SN 3121,
Louis Lot silver C foot (Barat Proprietor SN 5130,
Armstrong Emeritus 21 silver C foot SN K1474,
Armstrong 303 silver headjoint B foot SN 37 42307,
Armstrong Alto with silver headjoint SN 74-11295
My first two favorits are the Powell body and B foot with the Louis Lot seamed tube headjoint.
The other is the Louis Lot flute which has a C foot. For when I don't need low B.
My second choice is the silver Bonneville with the Burkart head joint.
My third is the plated bonneville.
I would like to sell the Armstrong emeritus 21, Armstrong 303 and JB Weissman Headjoint. If interested, please contact me with any questions?
The Bonneville silver headjoint has been sold. The Burkart head is now available. It has been replaced with a Gary Schocker model David Williams silver head joint. The Armstrong 303B is no longer available.
