MANCKE piccolo headjoints come with the patented MANCKE Interchangeable Adaptor System. All MANCKE headjoints share a consistency of superb workmanship. MANCKE headjoints are designed to project to the fullest extent and at every dynamic with a wide range of color potential and depth of sound. Each model exemplifies the signature qualities of the MANCKE experience – unparalleled responsiveness, control, flexibility, and resonance.
The Lip Plate model may feel very familiar to players who like the ease of having a lip plate similar to the flute, providing consistency when switching between instruments. This cut provides the familiar stability and control of the straight cut, with the added security of the lip plate for quick and accurate placement during those quick changes.
It is easy to find a big, resonant sound in all registers with the Lip Plate model. Extreme dynamic control and responsive articulation are available across the entire range. Although this embouchure cut will suit players who may struggle with standard piccolo embouchures or have a side embouchure, it is also a popular choice for players who are comfortable with the straight cut.
