In Italian, "Brio!" means energy and vitality. And that's what our newest line of flutes embodies. Blending
the performance of a handcrafted instrument with warm and focused sound, classical design and remarkably smooth mechanical
action from our gold springs and exacting tolerances. Add to all this a headjoint designed by Dana Sheridan, today's foremost
flute and headjoint craftsman, and elegant pointed French arms on our distinctive Gemeinhardt 33 Series key cups. The result
- a series of instruments as exciting as they are elegant. Capturing the pure joy of playing. That's Brio!
Brio! flutes feature a headjoint designed by Dana Sheridan, renowned headjoint maker working exclusively
with Gemeinhardt Flutes. The Dana Sheridan Series brings the expertise of Dana Sheridan together with the manufacturing legacy
of Kurt Gemeinhardt.
For more than 30 years Dana Sheridan has been refining his craft of creating flutes and headjoints.
His designs combine the knowledge and technical excellence gained working with the professional flute makers of Boston, Massachusetts
before becoming an independent maker.
The Dana Sheridan Series of headjoints is premiered with Gemeinhardt Flutes through
the launch of the Brio! flute line. Brio! flutes feature the sterling silver headjoint that is the culmination of a collaboration
between Dana Sheridan and craftsmen and engineers of Gemeinhardt. This design provides a free-blowing but focused headjoint
to enable flutists to achieve the sound colors their increasing musicianship demands.
When the perfect headjoint design
was finalized, the responsibility for hand-cutting each Sheridan Series Brio! headjoint transferred to Tom Lacy. Working as
a master craftsman with Gemeinhardt, Tom is an internationally recognized flutemaker who produces his own line of custom professional
instruments. Hand-cutting each Sheridan Series headjoint, Tom Lacy's craftsmanship is a part of every Brio! flute.
flutes feature the Sheridan Series Headjoint for a sound that will move players to new levels of performance.
