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.
MZ-6 Modern style design with an open, warm sound. Works well for flutists with a fast airstream and very relaxed embouchure. Plenty of harmonics and projection characterize this headjoint cut.
MZ-7 Modern style headjoint with a generous amount of "spin". Consistent tone and response throughout the registers. Designed for flutists with a very fast airstream and who seek a powerful sound with a large, controlled dynamic range.
MZ-8 Modern style headjoint with a well-defined rectangular shaped embouchure hole. Generally works best for flutists who direct their airstream far downward with a wide aperture.
MZ-9 A modern version of a traditional style headjoint. Characterized by a centered, dark sound with generous resistance and focused, laser-like projection. Works well for those who use air speed to control and direct their sound.
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.
MZ-11 A more traditional style-sound in a modern headjoint design. Characterized by an open, dark and fluid sound with fewer high harmonics. Comfortable resistance with easily controlled dynamics and a round, warm response.
