Miyazawa's 'Pinless' left hand mechanism represents a significant advance in technology and hand craftsmanship, resulting in a mechanism of incomparable quality.
All current models of Miyazawa flute, have a pinless left-hand mechanism. With the Miyazawa's new 'Pinless' left hand mechanism, all left hand keys are individually set on a single long rod which is secured at the kingpost. A bridge rod connects all keys for reliable adjustments. The bridge rod is positioned under the left hand mechanism, resulting in a sleek design & quality precision.
• Stationary left hand rod decreases friction on the mechanism, allows for more stable adjustments, and eliminates binding which can occur on traditional pinned mechanisms, resulting in a sleek design and quality precision.
• Design of long rod insures no king post wear.
• Stable design provides a smoother, quieter mechanism.
