Armstrong Fajardo Wooden Joint

African Blackwood head joint. In great condition. Hard case included.

This unique piece, featuring an unlined design with a thinned, raised lip-plate and a patented internal adjustable wedge, offers a rare and distinctive playing experience.

Designed by Raoul Fajardo, the headjoint aims to bring the traditional wooden flute's sound to modern silver flute players. Fajardo's innovative approach, outlined in his 1977 U.S. patent, includes a separate internal wedge for the taper, simplifying production and enhancing tone quality.

Armstrong's version allows the wedge to rotate and move within the bore, secured by rubber O-rings near the crown. This design facilitates easy manipulation for experimenting with sound and intonation.
