Since Brannen Brothers was founded in 1978, they have earned a worldwide reputation for unsurpassed excellence. There is no doubt about their place in the market; discerning flutists have placed them squarely at the top. Recently, Brannen launched a partnership with the famous French headjoint maker JR Lafin. These world-class headjoints are now available for purchase separately, or on any Brannen Brothers Flute. All Brannen Brothers flutes use the scale developed by their Vice-President Emeritus, Albert Cooper.
Brannen Brothers Flutes currently offers four headjoint styles: The "Modern Cooper," the "Modified Cooper," the "Epoch" and the "JR Lafin" style.
The Epoch Cut (formerly the 700) is the most projecting, responsive style ever, the Epoch is less resistance than the other Brannen-Cooper Headjoint styles.
The Modern Cooper Cut is projecting and responsive; it's Brannen's interpretation of Albert Cooper’s popular design, and it has the flexibility to cover a wide range of tone colors.
Flexible yet stable, the Modified Cooper Cut produces a rich, full sound with slightly more resistance than the Modern Cooper.
