Miyazawa PB102E Flute
Perfect Performance Plan
Included with every new instrument:
- Pre-Sale Set-Up
- Owner's Check-Up
- Three-Year Warranty
Miyazawa flutes are played by a large number of professional players, including Clare Southworth and Ian Clarke. Miyazawa, along with Altus, are one of the most forward-looking flute makers today, having developed new materials and keywork systems.
The PB-102 (formerly the PA102) is an excellent choice of intermediate instrument, being responsive, flexible and producing a clear sound with easy projection.
The Partial Brögger System
This model has the Brögger System™ in the left hand of the flute. This mechanism increases the stability of the keywork on the flute: using non-rotating shafts and back connectors for all the main line keys, the most common left-hand binding keywork and misadjustments are eliminated.

Miyazawa Flutes was founded in 1969 by Masashi Miyazawa. Mr. Miyazawa founded the company with a dream to create a better instrument. With his background in the design and manufacture of professional flutes, Miyazawa successfully brought together traditional craftsmanship with advanced technologies, a principle which still applies today. This dedication to the best of the old and the new gave birth to an instrument that exceeded even his lofty expectations. In 2005, Miyazawa introduced the Brögger System™. Designed by famed flutemaker Johan Brögger, the Brögger System™ features an innovative pinless mechanism allowing precise adjustments and balance of the spring tension of each individual key, resulting in a more even, effortless feel for the flutist. This mechanism is exclusively available on Miyazawa flutes.
