OUR TRADITION OF INNOVATION

Miyazawa Flutes was founded in 1969 by
Masashi Miyazawa. Mr. Miyazawa founded the company with a dream to

manufacture of professional flutes, Miyazawa successfully brought
together traditional craftsmanship with advanced technologies, a
principle which still applies today. This dedication to the best of the

In the mid-seventies, Masashi Miyazawa and American flutemaker P.L.
West, collaborated to tailor the Miyazawa flute to meet the needs of
North American flutists. Through their combined research and extensive
analysis, many innovations resulted such as the formulation of new
alloys, the widest collection of headjoints and the Miyazawa Improved
In 2005, Miyazawa introduced the Brögger System™. Designed by famed
flutemaker Johan Brögger, the Brögger System™ features an innovative
pinless mechanism allowing precise adjustments and balance of the spring
tension of each individual key, resulting in a more even, effortless
feel for the flutist.
