I have been working intensively with the Japanese Woodwind Manufacturer “JOSEF” since 2011. The founder and main developer is Yukio Nakamura, who has been involved in instrument making for over twenty years. JOSEF are famous for their oboes and English horns. The excellent technical skills of the Okinawa manufactory have gradually been extended to other woodwind instruments. As we know about other Japanese products, these instruments are first-class. The soloist model MK11 is distinguished by features from the world of the French and the German system.
