Hello on a very stormy Saturday! Since today’s etude is another very short one, I decided this would be a good time to play back-to-back on both head joints. I’ve mostly been playing the Rodger Young grenadilla head joint lately, but today I did my entire warm up on the Powell 14K Arumite head joint that came with my flute. I hadn’t planned to play on the wood head joint at all today but as I was finishing up the first part of the recording I decided to give it a shot.
The second half of this video was recorded with only a couple minutes of warm up on that head joint, but I can tell that I feel more comfortable and confident on it. I didn’t mean to, but I even played faster for that version! I can definitely hear differences in the sound and articulation between the two head joints – please comment and let me know what you think!
