 Need Heavier Crown
Author: TeeCeeGee 
Date:   2010-04-02 04:32


I have a 20 yr old Haynes HJ, which has a more modernish cut and noticed when I put the crown on it, from my 1953 Haynes flute HJ, which is much longer & heavier, the high notes are easier to play. I like it better, it's easier to control...just a little bit, but enough to make a difference.

I'm continuing to use this, but would like to get a heavier crown, to use on the HJ all the time. (so I can put the other one back on its original head)

Therefore, I guess I could call Haynes & see what they can sell me. (Not really interested in different metals, just one that weighs more)
or find an "aftermarket" one.

Any suggestions out there?
