You're looking for an edge. Miyazawa's exclusive Brögger System™ gives that to you.
You'll find comfort with a Miyazawa. Ergonomically designed for a natural fit in the flautist's hand, the Brögger Thumb Key Mechanism reduces hand fatigue. The relocated thumb-key post enables smoother, more secure playing. Traditional thumb key mechanisms require flat springs which contact the body tubing of the flute causing friction and wear. The innovative Brögger Thumb Key Mechanism uses the same springs used on the mainline keys, significantly reducing wear.
The Brögger System advances centuries of flute design, creating faster, more responsive key action and incredibly smooth mechanical function, letting your natural abilities shine through.
Miyazawa keys employ an integrated cup and pad screw receiver design with a perfectly flat interior surface. This structural improvement increases the stability of pad adjustments and allows the pad cup to seal properly with the tonehole, leading to a more full and resonant tone.
Cold forged parts are much stronger and more reliable than keys created through outdated heat-casting methods which compromise metal integrity.
Miyazawa is the only professional handmade flute company that utilizes a 100% cold forged key mechanism.
