MIYAZAWA FLUTE HEADJOINTS

Rooted in excellence, Miyazawa strives to become a Flute for life and a name for the ages

Miyazawa Flutes was founded in 1969 by Masashi Miyazawa.  Mr. Miyazawa founded the company with a dream to create a better instrument.  With his background in the design and manufacture of professional Flutes, Miyazawa successfully brought together traditional craftsmanship with advanced technologies, a principle which still applies today.   A Miyazawa headjoint is as unique as the player. Each is hand cut to the highest standards and is crafted with different metals and styles to fit the color and sound of each individual player. 

Headjoint Styles:

MZ-10 Allows the player to put a large volume of air through the flute, achieving a rich and powerful sound. Characterized by plenty of lower partials anchoring the sound with a full harmonic spectrum.  Flexible and responsive with a wide range of tonal and color possibilities.  

MX-1 Characterized by a centered, focused sound that is easy to control. The dark harmonics result in a dense penetration that is consistent throughout all registers. With an ample amount of resistance, this style provides a solid foundation for articulation.

MX-2 Open sound with a tonal complexity that allows for great freedom of expression. Full-bodied and responsive, while articulation is crisp and clean. Able to accommodate a high volume of air, this powerful style provides expansive projection with great stability.

Other styles available upon request!
