Miyazawa 202 out of tune?

After trying out new flutes in the upper $4k range long distance, I settled on a Miyazawa 202 with a MZ-10 head joint. But I'm finding this brand/model to out of tune, and can't figure out why. Is it me? Is it the flute? I bought it over Christmas break when rehearsals were on hiatus and I didn't th...

Re: New head joint for a Powell 2100

Yes, that's the dilemma. I need to send the Powell off to be diagnosed for its ailments (not sure if it's pads, or what), anyway, so was hoping it to send it off to a store/repair shop that had a number of good potential head joints that might fit and which they could then send to me for a trial.

New head joint for a Powell 2100

I have a Powell 2100 from 1996 and would like to upgrade to a better head joint. Powell now makes several other head joints, but the bore of the 2100 is too narrow for them.

Has anyone had luck with a different brand of head joint on this flute?

Update: she finally replied to my latest e-mail: "I don't have your flute. Check the music store. I returned everything when I left." So she's saying that she just left my flute at the shop when she stopped working there, without bothering to tell me that she'd even left. Who does that? And why coul...

Consignment shop won't return flute

Several years ago I left my flute with a repair shop in a music store; the repairwoman sold (and still sells) musical instruments on consignment. I only found out that her shop was no longer affiliated with the music store when I called there to ask about my flute. This woman now works out of her ho...
