Powell Aurumite vs Aurumite II

Hello! Just need some feedback about the Powell Aurumite II Headjoints. There is one being offered and am wondering if they are great or what, it raises questions because they were so short lived.

Re: Metal V.s Wood Piccs

My son is the piccolist. He started with a student, all metal Gemeinhardt, then when it was time to upgrade, he tried dozens of flutes, mostly wooden. Long story short, a Burkart (BP+E) Professional, (Grenadilla) with a modified wing lip, is what he chose. A few months later we were looking to upgra...

Thanks for the replies!

Re: Piccolo headjoints - do they make a difference?

My son plays a Burkart Professional, it originally came with a (Grenadilla) wave headjoint, It is an awesome sounding Piccolo as it was. We went to JB Weissman to try out Flute headjoints, and before leaving, we tried a few of his handmade Piccolo headjoints, well the last one he tried, was a Cocobo...
