Re: Unknown Miyazawa MS-100S

I'm not sure, but the MS-95s is a student model, solid silver head, nickel silver body from 20+ years ago. Could it be a different version, eg offset vs inline G, or a solid silver body instead of plated? Or maybe the model that replaced the 95s?

Mystery flute - help point me in the right direction!

I got a flute at Goodwill, and I would love to know more about its history. The issue is that there is no brand. I was hoping someone here with knowledge of makers and history could help. I'll list what I know so far, but I also uploaded pictures to imgur for reference: https://imgur.com/gallery/ZfA...

Pearl head joints

Hello all!

Does anybody know what head joint comes on the Pearl Quantz 765? I know it shares the same head joint as the 665, but beyond that I have no idea. I found head joint info for the Dolce line and up, but no info on the Quantz and "Quantz 505" series. Thanks!!

I am new to the message boards here, but I will go ahead and add in my two cents as well. I just recently purchased a Yamaha flute, and any of their models can be ordered with offset or inline G, depending on what you want. For example, the 481H is an inline with a B foot, and the 461H is the exact ...
