Opinions on how headjoints play are meaningless. You have to play them for yourself to see if you like them and are suited to you. There is no other way. All we can do is vouch that they are quality and many people do like them... There are different cuts and styles from these makers too so we cannot give you any kind of recommendation from a playing perspective that would be worth anything.

Make sure you can get a trial or return. A headjoint may or may not fit perfectly to try. If it doesn't fit you'll have to get it sized, Once sized, if you try and don;t like it, you can't return it if the metal tenon has been shrunk. If it's too loose, you can put tape on it to try it properly and have it sized later, But if it doesn;t go in you can't really try it...
