Tomasi Flutes are now offering newly designed head joints made from Olivewood, prized for its durability and aesthetic.

Following in the tradition of utilizing high-quality Grenadilla for their lip-plates, Tomasi flutes is again establishing itself at the forefront of headjoint design with their new Olivewood headjoints. Featuring a tube either in .835 Solid Silver (the 9 Series) or .925 Solid Silver (10 Series), these headjoints feature a solid-carved lip-plate made from highly-polished Olivewood. Olivewood is an ideal hardwood for this application due to its strength and beauty.

The Tomasi flutes series are available in three versions: Silver (SI): Elegant in timbre: The solid silver lip plate gives the soloist's feeling! Silver, the material most frequently used for making flutes, gives a beautifully sounding and concentrated flute tone. The elegant timbre and rich overtone resonance is versatile in use and covers every flautist's demand.

Grenadilla (GR): A warm sound, rich in overtones: The wooden lip plate for effortless playing. The lip plate of grenadilla wood holds a special position: Its colorful and easily modulated tone appeals not only to lovers of early music. It also offers optimum conditions for all those, who tend to produce rather colorless sounds with a metal lip plate. With a lip plate of granadilla wood it is possible, even at economical air flow, to produce a warm sound with a rich overtone resonance. Moreover it is a practicable alternative for players who are allergic to nickel or have other skin problems.

Gold (GO): The head joint for great tones! The riser of 14K gold for power and dynamics. Using a golden riser adds two substantial features:  The higher weight gives greater volume to the sound and the particular hardness of 14 K gold facilitates an easy direct response. Thereby you obtain a full, strong tone with far reaching potential for dynamic development.
