Up for sale is a rare flagship model by Miyazawa from the 1980’s. Miyazawa are one of the top makers of flutes in the world and have been hand crafting flutes since 1969 and are highly regarded. The Miyazawa Type-1 solid silver closed-hole flute model was among the very best that Miyazawa had to offer and is still offered with some changes to purity of silver and additional Brogger mechanism. It is beautifully handmade in solid silver sterling silver throughout with drawn tone holes. It was constructed in 1986 and Miyazawa in Japan have confirmed this.
This particular flute is in beautiful condition throughout with no dents or scratches. We have fully overhauled and restored it to stunning condition with new Lucien Deluxe pads and hand cut corks. The sound is superb, full and solid with edge and a joy to play. This is a very high quality concert flute and these models do not come up for sale very often. This particular flute was built prior to Miyazawa adopting the Brogger system and was constructed in Sterling silver throughout.
