This handmade Miyazawa headjoint is fully made of a silver. The tube and lip-plate are made of Britannia (.958) and Sterling (.925) silver, while the riser, that has the highest influence on the sound is made of .990 silver, the highest purity available. The Miyazawa MZ-11 Cut offers 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.>
Miyazawa is one of the well-known Japanese producers of top quality handmade flutes and headjoints. The company was founded in 1969 by Masashi Miyazawa, who combined traditional craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology, with the goal of producing the perfect flute. Today, Miyazawa keeps this philosophy in existence. As a result, every Miyazawa flute and headjoint is a combination of proven traditional techniques and groundbreaking technologies. Handmade with great care, to meet your highest expectations.
The headjoint is the most personal part of your flute and, being the part where the sound-waves are produced, has an important influence on the sound of your instrument. Miyazawa headjoints are handmade and developed in collaboration with world-renowned flutists. The headjoints are available in various high quality materials and material combinations. Throughout the years, Miyazawa has developed a significant range of headjoints with all their own character. We are very impressed with the consistent quality that Miyazawa realizes in making their headjoints.
