Gary Lewis Crown and Stopper
The Lewis Crown is a patented design that can be used on any flute, whether it be vintage or modern, professional or intermediate.
It combines three unique designs into a single unit which replaces the traditional crown:
- A spring linkage to reduce tension at the top of the headjoint and allow for freer vibration of the flute tube.
- A carefully tuned resonator to even out tone colors between the right hand and left hand. In many flutes, the D – E – F regions of the first and second registers do not often match the tone colors of the left hand. The resonator fixes that.
- An extension tube to add depth to your sound, refine legato lines and interval jumps, and temper brightness in the upper register.
Using the crown is very easy. Just replace your original crown with the Lewis Crown and align the logo to your embouchure plate.
