Geeky flute post: For the last year I’ve had no cork in my flute headjoint!!! Although I’ve kept it a little quiet because some flute players thought I was crazy when I told them. But now it’s time to let the world know that I’m corkless. Roberto Feliciano Rolon invented a metal stopper that replaces the traditional cork. He calls this the “Celestine Rexonator”. Last August he asked me to try it and fitted it to my headjoint and immediately I realised this was the future. Everything about my flute improved. EVERYTHING. It’s time to get rid of the corks in my other flutes too. It’s amazing that as musicians we are often playing on technology that was invented a few hundred years ago without any thought that perhaps it might be outdated. Thank you Roberto!!! You’re a genius.

Yeah you can def feel a difference in weight. And it’s headjoint end heavy which is quite weird at first. But took me about a day to get used to it and now I pick up other flutes and think they always seem too light. You adjust so quickly honestly. There are a few positions can have it in depending on what you want. Some people want darker sound. There is position for that. I wanted more sparkle and brilliance. And it absolutely gave me that. And much crisper articulation. And projection. I had it fitted at the NFA convention last august the day before my recital there. Which I guess was risky. But two friends came up to me after the recital asking if I had a new flute. I’ve had quite a few friends order them since hearing what it did to my flute. Seriously amazing!
