Miyazawa Flutes currently offers three traditional headjoint styles: The "MZ-9," the "MZ-10," and the "MZ-11," and two contemporary designs: The "MX-1" and the "MX-2."
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.
The MX-1 has a pure and warm tone with a high concentration of mid-range harmonics. The dense, penetrating sound is consistent throughout all registers. With an ample amount of resistance, this style provides a solid response to articulation.
The MX-2 has a free and comfortable feeling with a wide range of harmonics. The sound is complex with immense tonal color variety. Articulation is crisp and clean. Able to accommodate a high volume of air, this style provides expansive projection with a great pitch control.
