THE MIYAZAWA STORY

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. This dedication to the best of the old and the new gave birth to an instrument that exceeded even his lofty expectations.

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 Scale.

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.

Today, the Miyazawa flute is an instrument refined to the highest standards. With a Miyazawa, you will have complete confidence in your instrument and in the people who stand behind the name.
