Headjoint Styles


 

MZ-6
Modern style design with an open, warm sound. Works well for flutists with a fast airstream and very relaxed embouchure. Plenty of harmonics and projection characterize this headjoint cut.
MZ-7
Modern style headjoint with a generous amount of "spin." Consistent tone and response throughout the registers. Designed for flutists with a very fast airstream and who seek a powerful sound with a large, controlled dynamic range.
MZ-8
Modern style headjoint with a well-defined rectangular shaped embouchure hole. Generally works best for flutists who direct their airstream far downward with a wide aperture.
MZ-9
A modern version of a traditional style headjoint. Characterized by a dark sound, generous resistance, increased depth, as well as a rich tonal palette. Works well for those who use their air-speed to direct the sound.
MZ-10
Allows the player to put a large volume of air through the flute, achieving a full and powerful sound. Characterized by plenty of lower partials anchoring the sound while maintaining color and richness of the tonal palette
