This used Miyazawa MZ-10 Flute Headjoint with heavy wall and 14K gold riser allows players to put a large volume of air through the flute, achieving a rich and powerful sound. Characterized by plenty of lower partials anchoring the sound with a full harmonic spectrum. This flute headjoint is flexible and responsive with a wide range of tonal and color possibilities. All Miyazawa headjoints are made of .958 silver.
The 14K gold riser tends to provide players with more complex and comfortable sound to any given headjoint cut. They take some of the edge off of the sound and make it sound darker and sweeter. There is a bit more resistance to work with, which many flutists like, and many people comment that the sound is more "full".
