• Replaced: pads, corks, foams, adjustments, (trills and D# replaced if needed)
• All solder joints are checked and key fit adjusted (replaced if necessary)
• All flute tubing and mechanism tubing is thoroughly cleaned and hand polished
• Thoroughly play tested multiple times to ensure original qualities are retained

Emergency Repairs (ER)

Priority repair service for those flutists that need the last minute fix or pad replacement. Overnight service can be guaranteed dependent upon the condition of the instrument and the time of day received.

Pricing available after condition of the instrument is assessed


Expert Voicing (EVO)

Each instrument is different and requires careful balancing of springs, pads, and adjustments to make it play its very best. Voicing is performed on an instrument that is playing well, but doesn’t quite have that ‘zing’ you desire. Voicing will only enhance the resonance of your flute. Nothing is removed, carved, or soldered to the flute. It is kept in its inherent original shape from whence it came, but it will ring like never before.

From $395* USD
*A COA may be necessary to properly voice the instrument
