Replacing Cork in Headjoint of Martin Doyle Irish flute
I recently Purchased a Martin Doyle Celtic flute which I really like and enjoy playing.
However it seems to have suffered some abuse to the cork in the head joint resulting in it becoming worn around the edges giving it a kind of inverse conical shape. I think this is affecting the low notes.
I don’t see any easy way of removing the cork. usually the hed screws off and one can replace the cork but the head on this seems more permanently fixed and I am concerned about damaging the flute.
Any tips? or should I be asking this question on a different forum?
