Hello, Looking for some advice towards what headjoint to get next.
I'm playing on an Armstrong 87* (solid silver body and foot, plated keys, open hole, low B).
It came with a "P4" headjoint which I don't like.
The low end comes out easily, but the second register and up is too difficult on it.
Looking to replace it with another headjoint.
Armstrong makes cuts called S cut, G cut, B, T2, F, ...
I am confused by all these options without the details of what they mean.
I prefer a flat, rounded squarish embouchure cut...(similar to Powell signature - I had one, but no one would fit it for me so I just sold it)
The P4 I have has the embouchure cut very weirdly, I do not like the wave shape.
I'm looking at the S cut at the moment. I wish there was somewhere to see these in person (I'm in Los Angeles), it's so hard to figure out the details from pictures online.
Thank you for any help!!!
EDIT - Flute model is Armstrong 87, had the 180 for a coupe months just before that.
