Muramatsu are the oldest Japanese flute company, established in 1923. They have always had strong support from prestigious players around the world.
The SR model is a superb flute. Players who like a slightly weightier flute, with more resistance and a darker sound, may prefer this model over the DS. The SR has all of Muramatsu's trademark tone colours, with greater flexibility and subtlety.
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.
