Brannen Brothers Flutes currently offers four headjoint styles: The "Modern Cooper," the "Modified Cooper," the "Epoch" and the "JR Lafin" style.
The Epoch Cut (formerly the 700) is the most projecting, responsive style ever, the Epoch is less resistance than the other Brannen-Cooper Headjoint styles.
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.
J. R. Lafin headjoints are outstanding for their extended dynamic range in all registers and for a wide range of tone colors. There is one single "style," but there are a number of tubing options and all headjoints can be made with or without Adler-style wings.
