Flute Servicing and Repairs
Like any mechanical object, your flute requires a regular service if it is to perform at its very best. There are many moving parts which depend upon fine adjustments, and pads, corks and springs which deteriorate with time and use. Only a flute which is performing to the best of its potential, can assist a student or musician to perform to the best of theirs.
We recommend regular Flute Servicing and Repairs, on a yearly basis, dependent upon use. Our Flute Servicing and Repairs costs are the lowest you will find in Adelaide and beyond, but that doesn’t mean you will be substituting quality. All flutes are subject to strict quality control, and are test played with the lightest touch before leaving us. We adjust every instrument as if it were to be played by the youngest student, and also guarantee any work we carry out for a period of six months after. We take great pride in all our Flute Servicing and Repairs.
“Thanks for servicing my flute!! It sounds wonderful and lovely and it’s just splendid! I can’t remember my flute being this shiny since the day I got it, it pretty much looks brand new, so thank you very much indeed!” – Clarence Chuah
