I’ve heard it a million times – your headjoint isn’t playing how you want it to.
It’s too hard to play, it lacks color, it lacks depth, you’re afraid it isn’t ever going to feel like the right headjoint and it's holding you back.
You’ve tried to make it work but it feels like every time you play there is a compromise between the sound and feel you want and the sound and feel it’s giving you. You need to take your playing to the next level but you feel like your practice sessions (no matter how long, no matter how focused) aren’t improving those nagging little issues.
You decided to go and try some new headjoints but you haven’t found any that have the whole package and now you feel like maybe what you’re looking for, that headjoint that you need, just isn’t out there. I get it – after having played for years with what felt like a restricted and small high register that just never opened up, (even after years of careful practice and high register exercises daily) I discovered that the undercut was too deep on my Yamaha headjoint, leaving me with an issue that no amount of practicing could ever overcome.
If any of this sounds like what you’ve been struggling with, you’ve come to the right place.

…her skills as a head joint maker are, for me, proven as remarkable. I have three heads which she has made for me. All as close to identical in feel, projection, articulation as you might ever hope to be possible.
– IAN ANDERSON, JETHRO TULL
Lindsey has a genuine gift for this aspect of flute making. The finishing and nuance of the scraper technique rivals anyone I have known in the industry. Lindsey is dedicated and introspective about her work and the headjoints she produces. Combine this with her aptitude as a flutist and inherent gift for communication without barriers, and Lindsey represents the future of headjoint making, at its best.
– DAVID WILLIAMS, WILLIAMS FLUTES
Henceforth, I have thought of her as a "Zen Master" in the art of cutting head joints, because it really takes that kind of patient, sustained attention to detail…coming from the workshop of Lindsey, I suspect it will be another winner!

Looking for a headjoint that’s
LITERALLY MADE FOR YOU?
The one that got away – we all know the feeling. It’s that headjoint your teacher had that you fell in love with when you tried it, or that headjoint that sold before you could make up your mind, the headjoint that is no longer in production that your friend owns (and loves) that is totally unique. While in grad school my teacher took me aside and let me try his old headjoint that he had decided to put up for sale – an early Cooper style headjoint. He let me play it and I was hooked immediately.
I knew I had to have it, but before I could get my parents to help me with the purchase it had sold. Sound familiar? I can design and build the headjoint that you’re looking for, that headjoint that you know is the right one for you. I offer a complete line of styles to fit most flutist’s needs, but I also build custom headjoints for players like you that are trying to find something they can’t get any other way.
