Wooden headjoints are flute mouthpieces that are made from wood instead of metal. Although many different types of woods can be used to make one, the best wood by far to use is African Blackwood, also called Grenadilla. African Blackwood is the wood that is used by all major manufacturers to make intermediate and professional level clarinets, oboes and flutes. If you want a big, rich, and full sound on your flute, a wooden headjoint is the best way to go, and the best wooden headjoints for the flute are now being made by J. Novo wooden headjoints in Saint Petersburg, Florida.

Some say that a wooden headjoint with a thick-wall and no lip plate produces a darker and richer sound than that produced by a thinned headjoint that has a lip plate. Nothing could be further from the truth. The J. Novo ultra-thin headjoint with lip plate produces a darker, richer, and bigger sound than any thick-wall headjoint due to its unique design, bore configuration and size, and other proprietary particulars. In addition, Novo’s ultra-thin design is also superior because his ultra-thin headjoint is less likely to crack than a thick-wall model due to the vast difference in mass. The thicker the wall, the more the mass; the greater the mass the more chances of cracking.

The thickness of the Novo wall is slightly less than half of the thick-wall design. Therefore, it is fair to say that the thick-wall headjoint has twice the chances of cracking compared to Novo’s ultra-thin design. Incidentally, there is a lot more work involved in making a good thinned headjoint than there is in making a thick one (more than twice the amount of work). This is one reason why some makers do not make thinned headjoints – it is too much work! Mr. Novo’s ultra-thin wooden headjoint design, which is now imitated (but not duplicated) by other makers worldwide , is certainly far superior to any thick-wall headjoint on the market today.

It is also important to note that the thick-wall headjoint is much heavier than the J. Novo ultra-thin headjoint and therefore feels very awkward and unbalanced on the flute. When playing a thick-wall wooden headjoint, the flute feels “top-heavy,” so to speak, and the player gets tired of holding the flute after awhile because of the heavy headjoint. Not so with the J. Novo wooden headjoint. Due to Mr. Novo’s unique ultra-thin design, the J. Novo wooden headjoint weighs the same as a silver headjoint and therefore feels perfectly balanced on any metal flute. Mr. Novo has advanced the design of the thinned wooden headjoint to a level that has not been equaled to date, and the proof is in the testimonials written by the lucky owners of those affordable extraordinary headjoints.
