Yamaha EC headjoint for sale!

Hey guys! I'm selling my Yamaha 'EC' headjoint because I have upgraded to a new headjoint for my Yamaha flute and no longer need this headjoint. I'm sure you know all this but just in case: The EC headjoint is Yamaha's most popular and well known headjoint, played by many professional flutists all o...

If you can, consider going to the annual Florida Flute Fair next year! February 1-3 2008 at the Hilton in Altamonte Springs [near Orlando] The exhibition room has tons of headjoint makers there and the representatives working there will be glad to fit the headjoint into your flute and let you try th...

Yep! I think she's still trying to figure out if you can still audition for Patel's Youth Orchestras since she's in Junior Philharmonic [I made Youth Symphony but I'm a new member with Patel too so I have no idea how everything works...with late auditions and all.] I'll ask around with the veteran f...

Sinebar, there is no such thing as "a headjoint for beginners or a headjoint for professionals." We choose our own headjoints depending on what we hope to achieve and what we want or need as musicians. And I agree with Phineas - for the price of the EC, it's not worth it. [Yamaha headjoints are all ...

Powell Signature Piccolos?

So I've tried the Powell Signature Flutes and was extremely amazed by them but I've never seen or even heard the Powell Signature piccolos! Does anyone have any experience with them? I've been playing around with piccolos lately and I've found Burkarts aren't my cup of tea at all...

Well I'm guessing if the person changed the headjoints and it's still a Yamaha headjoint then the model is stamped on the headjoint. My headjoint says EC on it. But since you already found that you like the 481 I wouldn't be too bothered witht hat headjoint model is, just the fact that you loved it!...

I agree with Phineas. I just got my Yamaha 600 series and it comes with the EC headjoint. Before the flute, I played a Gemeinhardt 2SP witht he J1 headjoint that simply did whatever I wanted it to. It's taking longer to adjust to the EC headjoint than I tohught it would but I absolutely love the hea...

I agree with fluttiegurl, the headjoint is responsible for most of the flute's sound and should be no different for the piccolo. I just have to find someone that will sell Yamaha piccolo headjoints now...
