Japanese boehm flutes pitch

Post by Rodrigoacevedo » Mon Sep 30, 2019 12:36 pm

Hi everybody!

I wanted to ask you about the pitch of "old" japanese flutes around 1982-1986. I have a Mateki 061 model which was built around those years (probably on 1985). The problem, surely mine, is that I get my A around 440 with the whole headjoint in. Also it is not the original headjoint but as I'm located too far away from any flute shop I can't try it with another headjoint. So, has anyone any info about these flutes? I know that the Mateki brand doesn't produce flutes anymore so its difficult to determine whether the flute is on 442 or 440. If anyone can help me I'd be very thankful!!!
