This has varied from no wait to as much as two years. I try really hard to keep it under two months. *
My best times for making headjoints are during the summer and over Christmas break. While I can make a few heads during the school year, I usually get a rush of orders in August and January just when I've run out of time to make them.
So, if you're considering a headjoint, please get on the waiting list NOW. It's free and there's no obligation.
All you need do is email me with the following:
make of piccolo
date you'd prefer delivery
I'll confirm your place on the list and try to give an idea when to expect your name to come up.
This has proven to be wishful thinking. Every year or two I do manage to
get caught up, but lately I've been more involved performing and teaching while
the number of orders has also gone up. If you do want a headjoint, by all
means let me know. I will eventually get it made, but as of the moment, I
don't dare promise a delivery date. I hate to keep people waiting, but it
is probably best to think in terms of years rather than months. During the
2006 2007 I intend to invest in more up-to-date machinery
to improve both
quality and delivery times. I'll keep you posted!
