This exciting flute model is popular worldwide. The GX comes with a hand-cut solid silver head and solid silver body, along with Muramatsu’s special silver-clad key mechanism, the same reliable key mechanism used on our most expensive flutes.
Yet, the price of this model is thousands less than other professional flutes that do not offer the high quality and impeccable construction standards exemplified in all Muramatsu flutes.
Muramatsu are the oldest Japanese flute company, established in 1923. The GX model is in high demand, with the characteristic dark, velvety sound of the Muramatsu EX flute, given further tonal flexibility through the addition of a solid tube. The heavy wall makes this flute slightly more resistive, and gives a big, dark sound. Hugely satisfying to play.
When, in 1923 Koichi Muramatsu began manufacturing Western concert flutes in Japan, the instrument was virtually unknown there: the population of flute players in Japan consisted of around 20 amateur and professional flautists, and the sound of the flute was almost entirely new to Japan.
As Muramatsu introduced the flute to Japan, the popularity of the instrument rose and the company grew. By the 1970s Muramatsu had established itself as the flute of choice for professionals and amateurs across the world. Many of these flutes are still going strong and sound as beautiful as they did back then, while Muramatsu - still family-owned - have continued developing their flutes to maintain their market-leading position.
