The Elan Home Page

Begin with The Elan.

An advantage for beginners.


The Elan is built to the same exacting specifications and quality as all of our professional headjoints and is ideal for any budget conscious musician, student, or beginner looking for better intonation and the same advantages the pros have.



I can say without a doubt that every Garner Headjoint performs to its greatest potential when played in a Yamaha Flute.

Fluting, revolutionized.

Nearly 200 years in the making.


Painstakingly handcrafted by uncompromising craftsmen and skilled engineers, the revolutionary Garner Headjoint has the ability to transform any flute and allow the flutist to play at a new level of excellence.



Garner headjoints are forged from precious transition metals never before used in flute making. This is combined with our cutting edge technology for flawless precision and sound quality.

  • Innovative materials

    By combining harder and denser new metals like tantalum and niobium that have never been used before, Garner’s revolutionary patented headjoint design enables any flute to perform better.

  • Enhanced sound quality

    Our patented Power Bands have been used to secure the wall to the tube without soldering, allowing conventional metals like silver and gold to perform with better sound quality.

  • Unique consistency

    Garner embouchures represent an unparalleled degree of precision that can only be achieved with patented cutting edge computer technology, ensuring the same level of quality in every headjoint.
