The history of modern flute-making in Japan began in 1923 with the very first flute made by the late pioneer, Koichi Muramatsu, an eminent artisan and the founder of Muramatsu Flutes. At that time, the number of amateur and professional flute players in Japan totaled a mere twenty. Mr. Muramatsu’s devoted efforts and passion for flute-making remain alive in the fundamental philosophy of Muramatsu Flutes today.
The Muramatsu Flute Company accepts its reputation with humility. We remain committed to the practical application of exacting scientific standards in flute design and manufacturing with an aim to satisfy the desires and sensibility of the discerning flutist.
