About Eppler Head Joints
Alexander Eppler was the first American flutemaker to reintroduce the wooden headjoint on a systematic basis, beginning in 1975. Noted for ease of response yet full tone, Eppler wooden headjoints can be heard today in the United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Russia, Hong Kong, China, Spain, and elsewhere. Eppler wooden headjoints, acclaimed for their unequalled beauty of design and craftsmanship, are also found in private collections in the United States and Great Britain.
