Expert Flute Repairs and Overhauls

We are happy to provide you with the finest service for your instrument.

Our repair services range from simple adjustments to complete overhauls. Our process for padding is to use the incredibly detailed and time intensive technique called “shimming”, as this is the only true method to be utilized for a perfect pad seat. We do not machine polish handmade flutes, but rather hand polish at the customer's request. We can also pad with Straubinger pads for those flutes requiring them.

We suggest contacting us in advance to drop off your flute. Emergency repairs (or repairs while you wait) will be accommodated when possible for a $50 surcharge.

We are Muramatsu, Powell, Altus, Miyazawa, Brannen, Burkart, Haynes and Straubinger Certified.

We have a minimum repair charge of $60.

Prices for a 'clean, oil and adjust' start at $200, not including polishing. A full 'dip and polish' is an additional $200.

Our prices for overhauls start $1,500.
