About Us

The flutegadgets.co.uk website is operated by me, Peter Robertson (@flutealot).

I am a flute player, and the founder/owner of the digital product consultancy Chapter Media Ltd, and the digital agency Upbeat Productions Ltd - both with main offices in Covent Garden, London. 

This website and some of the products I've created were inspired by taking flute making courses with Dr Robert Bigio. Whilst I have some radical ideas in development, the swap stopper and crowns were a great way for me to enhance my understanding of flute acoustics, complementing the experience of making headjoints and other experiments with Dr Bigio.

The swap stopper was also something I felt was needed: both to replace the cork, and also as a means of customising sound. When I began experimenting with materials I had a Haynes 10k gold headjoint which was fantastic, but which I felt I was overpowering. By customising the stopper material and weight, I've extended its life and given myself more confidence when playing it.
