For professional players or advanced students, who already have a specific custom flute set-up in mind, we can help find the exact specification. Buying a second-hand flute can be a smart move allowing for a better upgrade at a fraction of the cost of a new flute. 


All musicians need a quality hands-on approach to woodwind repair and maintenance. Student flute servicing and repairs can be carried out by myself in London (Please contact me for details). Professional flute repairs are carried out by Steve Shaw at Cheshire Woodwind Ltd.


If you have a used flute or used piccolo for sale and would like some help or advice, please do get in touch. We can also look at purchasing your flute/piccolo. Standard flat rate commission charged is 15% of sale price.


Lastly, do not neglect insuring your instrument. I have heard so many stories of instruments being lost, stolen or damaged and the owner left to bear the cost.
