Body and key work well made. But the head is awesome. I service many different flutes and this and the GX are the ones I really look forward to play testing.
I cannot remember if it has Straubinger pads. If so, I find them rather unreliable (because of the unrealistic accuracy they demand) and the membrane splits easily. Next time I see one I intend checking for non-level tone holes, which also affects reliability.
Body and key work on the Muramatsu EX is well made.
But for me, the sound from the head is awesome!
I play flute reasonably well and with significant experience, and I service many different flutes. This and the GX are the ones I really look forward to play testing. (There are a few others that show up too, but more pricey.) Excellent value for money. Would like to try that head on a good cheap body such as Yamaha 200 series.
