Since Brannen Brothers was founded in 1978, they have earned a worldwide reputation for unsurpassed excellence. There is no doubt about their place in the market; discerning flutists have placed them squarely at the top. Recently, Brannen launched a partnership with the famous French headjoint maker JR Lafin. These world-class headjoints are now available for purchase separately, or on any Brannen Brothers Flute. All Brannen Brothers flutes use the scale developed by their Vice-President Emeritus, Albert Cooper.
Brannen Brothers Flutes currently offers three headjoint styles: The "Modern Cooper," the "Modified Cooper," and the "JR Lafin" style.
The Modern Cooper Cut is projecting and responsive; it's Brannen's interpretation of Albert Cooper’s popular design, and it has the flexibility to cover a wide range of tone colors.
Flexible yet stable, the Modified Cooper Cut produces a rich, full sound with slightly more resistance than the Modern Cooper.
