Professional Flute Repair and Flute Repad

Professional Flute Repair and Professional Flute repad Our flute repair technicians are highly trained artisans. We look at all aspects of a flute and assess its operational qualities to ensure, upon its completion, that the instrument is in the absolute best condition possible. Our artisans pay attention to details such as Body dents, post alignment with regards to key operation, pad thickness and key height issues, tuning, proper screw and key shaft fitting, and fine tuning.

Many shops tend to overlook certain parts of the flute repair process. They consider some operations that we perform on a routine basis redundant. NO PART of the repair of your instrument should simply be overlooked. We thoroughly examine the flute or piccolo and assess completely anything that might need to be done to put it into top-notch condition. We call with a complete estimate BEFORE we do any work so that you are not confused about what we are doing! When we are done with the repair your instrument is carefully pegged down so that nothing changes during shipment. The flute is then packed securely and returned to you in a timely manner.
