"He recently found that the mass of head cork stopper will change the resonance of sound. He now adopts a much heavier stopper."

I am highly suspicious, in view of the hype and distortion of truth for the purpose of marketing, that seems to surround most if not all flute makers....

Did he give the details of NON-subjective testing that demonstrated this?

It is very rare for ANY flute maker to present results form valid experiments to substantiate claims. I believe that this is because most claims are closer to beliefs than reality. Most of them are probably in the same category as snake oil was in a bygone era, presented in order to extract money from the gullible.

I would not be a bit surprised to next see a magnet embedded in the crown, to enhance the sound waves.

Healthy scepticism? My exposure to the marketing wiles in the flute world certainly deserve it!
