Re: Miyazawa 202 + Headjoint Options + Heavy Walll

Final Chapter: Miyazawa 202 Posting with the hope this helps others who are searching for their next flute. I chose the 202 heavy wall with the MX-2 head joint. ** I played the standard wall with the MX-2 and MZ-10 head joints. ** I played the heavy wall with the MX-1 and MX-2 head joints. My instru...

Re: Miyazawa 202 + Headjoint Options + Heavy Walll

The heavy wall 202 arrived yesterday along with an MX-1 and MX-2 head joint. I really like the MX-2 for the 202 standard wall. In fact, I really like the standard wall a lot. I need to spend the weekend playing the heavy wall. I will meet with my instructor and Monday and decide. Then one goes back ...

Re: Miyazawa 202 + Headjoint Options + Heavy Walll

The 202 with heavy wall with Mx-1 head joint should be coming Friday or Monday. I can't wait 😊 On the head joint, I incorrectly indicated in my earlier post that I have the Mx-1 as well as the Mz-10. I have the Mx-2. Between the Mx-2 and the Mz-10 both my teacher and I prefer the Mx-2. The next (and...

Re: Miyazawa 202 + Headjoint Options + Heavy Walll

Hello all: I’ve narrowed my search to a Miyazawa 202. I have a standard wall model on trial right now with the Mx-10 and Mz-1 head joints. I have a heavy wall model coming next week with an Mz-2 head joint. Of course, I love them both. My lesson with my teacher is next week and she will help me disc...

Re: Negotiating Flute Price

I’m a newbie here and an adult amateur. I’m looking for a flute upgrade myself, most likely the Miyazawa 202 (see my recent post on standard wall versus heavy wall, etc.). So here’s my flute shopping advice: Take your time and don’t let anyone pressure you into a deal that you really don’t want. The...

Miyazawa 202 + Headjoint Options + Heavy Walll

Hello all: I’m considering the Miyazawa 202 with heavy wall. I haven’t played one yet. I did trial a Miyazawa 102 with standard wall and M-10 headjoint. I loved the mechanism and sound over others that I tried. I’m hoping the 202 will be all that and more. Others I’ve played so far: Azumi AZ3 Di Zha...

Trevor James Virtuoso Voce

Hello all: I'm trialing some new flutes, among them a Trevor James Virtuoso Voce. Also a Miyazawa 102, Di Zhao 700, Azumi Az3, and Yamaha 677. I'm currently playing an early 1970s Gemeinhardt M3S. The TJ feels and sounds like a much better version of the M3S. Am I crazy? Has anyone who has experienc...

Re: Old Gemeinhardt M3S + Thoughts on New(er) Flute?

Thanks for the response. (I was locked out of my account for the last couple of months, otherwise I would have thanked you sooner 🌝 The Gemeinhardt is all silver — that’s all I know as well. It’s in great shape for being an early 1970’s specimen. Sometimes I wonder if it would benefit from a better ...
