Miyazawa Headjoint in 9K Gold (Custom-Built)
Miyazawa 9K gold handcut headjoint - (.014) tubing, 9K gold tube, lip plate, riser and crown. Handmade in Japan.
Miyazawa Flutes currently offers three headjoint styles: The "MZ-9," the "MZ-10," and the "MZ-11."
A modern version of a traditional style headjoint, the MZ-9 is characterized by a centered, deep sound with generous resistance and focused, laser-like projection. Works well for those who use air speed to control and direct their sound.
The 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.
The MZ-11 is 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.
