Head Joints

Lopatin head joints are available in your choice of gold, sterling silver, platinum or stainless steel, and in two styles.

The Lopatin provides a wide range of colors, and an excellent balance of resistance and responsiveness. Its flexibility gives the performer plenty of room for musical expression.

The Scherzo is designed for maximum responsiveness. It features an extremely sharp blowing angle and a high degree of undercutting. Ease of articulation is a major characteristic of this style. It is the “show-off” of the Lopatin head joint family.

In addition, the sterling silver head joint comes in your choice of .014″, .016″, or .018″ tubing thickness. The .014″ gives you the brightest sound; the .018″ gives you the darkest. The .016″ is a happy medium.
