The Branen Brögger 15/85 paired with the 15/85 J.R. Lafin headjoint is a top silver flute on the market
The Branen Brögger 15/85 is the newest flute available from Brannen Brothers Flutemakers. This flute is made from an alloy of 15% gold and 85% silver which creates a unique tonal quality and ease of response.
The 15/85 Brögger Flute is the first Brögger Flute paired with a Lafin headjoint and made with drawn, rather than soldered toneholes. With drawn toneholes, drawing or pulling the tubing material up out of the body tubing creates the toneholes. Because of this, the sound and response of the flute greatly benefit from the inherent qualities of the 15/85 material.
This model offers a unique playing and hearing experience emanating from the world-renowned work of headjoint maker Rainer Lafin. Mr. Lafin has used this alloy for many years to create his fine headjoints, and now Brannen flutes are available in the same material. This flute offers more than just a silver/gold hybrid experience. It has its own distinct character, best described as providing the ease of playing silver with the rounder, fuller body of playing gold – unusually smooth, flexible, and very responsive.
