Stefán Höskuldsson, Flutist

“The Emanuel flute has been an incredible discovery for me.  This superior instrument offers both strength and incredible beauty of sound, from the softest to the loudest of dynamics with endless colors and articulation.  In the opera repertoire it is like a supporting voice, with both sonority and presence.  With an impeccable scale, it also offers a very sturdy and precise mechanism.  It is a flutist’s dream come true!”

From the first moment that I tried my Emanuel headjoint, I knew that this
was better than anything else I had ever played. I immediately began using
it for my work as flute soloist with the Buenos Aires Philharmonic, and
playing it for chamber music and solo performances.

I am very happy with the move to my new 14K gold Emanuel headjoint. It
allows limitless possibilities for musical expression and expansion,
color, dynamics, and flexibility. I am so grateful for the wonderful work
that Emanuel has done to advance the capabilities of the instrument.

“With my Emanuel Flute I have found the beauty and power of tone that I have known with my Louis Lot flute, plus a modern scale, articulation and projection.
The workmanship is beautiful and it is a joy to play!”
