Silver Flute Series - 202

The Silver Flute Series 202 is a handmade flute with a 958 silver headjoint, silver plated nickel silver body, footjoint and key mechanism. Features open holes, French style pointed tonearms, drawn toneholes, pinless partial Brgger System and Straubinger Pads.

The Brogger Mainline Key System
All Miyazawa Flutes are built with the Brogger Mainline Key System, designed by the renowned Danish flutemaker Johan Brgger. Benefits of this design include a one-piece rod and kicker construction, resulting in a streamlined and stronger mechanism. Key movement is transferred from key to key through the Brogger back connectors as opposed to a pinned steel. This allows for individual key movement rather than moving an internal assembly. As the rods do not rotate with the keys, the friction and wear between the rods and hinge tubes can be minimized, resulting in a longer life of the instrument. Simplified construction and less friction bring about faster key action and an incredibly light, smooth, and quiet mechanism. The Brogger Mainline Key System allows for more stable adjustments and eliminates binding which can occur on traditional pinned mechanisms. The Brogger System, which includes the Brogger Thumb Key, is a revolutionary mechanism that advances this concept and is available on several Miyazawa models.

Drawn toneholes are seamlessly sculpted from the flute's body, giving you a quick, flexible response and a rich, resonant timbre. Soldered toneholes, on the other hand, are separate rings fused to the flute's tube, resulting in slightly increased resistance. Flutes with soldered toneholes are frequently characterized as dark or deep in timbre.

Straubinger Pads
Straubinger Pads were designed specifically for handmade flutes. The design of the pad ensures that it is virtually impervious to changes in temperature and humidity that cause felt pads to expand or contract. Straubinger Pads also have an extremely firm and flat surface. This creates a more precise seal, resulting in increased resonance and clarity of sound. The highest quality pad on the market today, Straubinger Pads are the perfect match for the highest quality flute.
