A band colleague is looking for alternative flute headjoints as she developped some pain in the arm or wrist when playing. There are the U-joints that shorten the distance from head to keys, and there are some less curvy varieties (from 30° to 90°) from flutelabs. U-joints are comparably cheap while flutelab's products have a hefty price tag, and play-testing is difficult as these are made to order only. Now, has any of you successfully bent a (replacement) headjoint yourself? I know, it's not just bending, it's also acoustics and whatnot, but still - any headbenders in here? Or does anyone know of alternative sources?
