The Galway Crusader Headjoint

It has a very even tone. Completely even all the way up and down the flute. In my opinion there are a lot of headjoints out in the market people push that don’t come up to snuff. This is the real deal!”

— Sir James Galway

Gemeinhardt Proudly Introduces the Galway Crusader Series Headjoint

The Galway Crusader C1 model headjoint kicks off the series with a design Gemeinhardt carefully constructed to Sir James Galway’s exacting specifications. Through the latest technological advancements, Gemeinhardt is able to replicate the headjoint design for each and every headjoint produced. The inconsistencies of the hand making process are taken out of the equation, and the flutist’s expectations for high quality sound production are guaranteed in every headpiece.

Although he is as busy as ever on the International Concert Scene, Sir James says that his passion now lies in music education – and that is the legacy he wants to leave behind.

Music gives you an extra colour in your education, when kids are learning music at school, it gives them their own voice. More importantly than that, it teaches them comradeship, the importance of playing together and pulling together to make moments of great intensive beauty."
