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.
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.
