Headjoint Styles

MZ-9

A modern version of a traditional style headjoint. Characterized by a centered, deep sound with generous resistance and focused, laser-like projection. Works well for those who use air speed to control and direct their sound.

MZ-10

Allows the player 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.  Flexible and responsive with a wide range of tonal and color possibilities.

MZ-11

A more traditional style-sound in a modern headjoint design.  Characterized by an open, dark and fluid sound with fewer high harmonics. Comfortable resistance with easily controlled dynamics and a round, warm response.
