London's premier used flute specialist.

A professional musician myself, I founded London Flutes approximately 15 years ago. I love searching for rare and interesting flutes and piccolos, restoring them, playing them and passing them on to other players. Over the years I have looked further afield, developing contacts around the world and have supplied to principal players in many international orchestras.

All of our instruments are carefully chosen by me and restored by Steve Shaw at Cheshire Woodwind. I offer unbiased advice and assistance on tailor-making the right instrument for the right player and all flutes/piccolos are sold in beautiful used condition.

Our prices cannot be beaten and we pride ourselves on the superb quality and condition of our instruments. Drop me a line to discuss what you are looking for and I will be glad to help!

OUR SERVICES

I specialise in all modern makes,  including Muramatsu, Altus, Yamaha, Hammig, Sankyo, Brannen, Burkart, Arista, Mateki, Miyazawa, Pearl, Powell and Altus.

I have also sold Wessell, Nagahara, Almeida, Rudall Rose Carte, Braun, Albert Cooper, Ewen Mcdougall, Jack Moore, Louis Lot, Bonneville, Flutemakers Guild, Lehner, Reiner and many more.

For professional players or advanced students, who already have a specific custom flute set-up in mind, I can help find the exact specification.

All musicians need a quality hands-on approach to woodwind repair and maintenance, that’s why we recommend and use Cheshire Woodwind Ltd.

If you have a flute for sale and would like some help or advice, please do get in touch.

INSTRUMENT INSURANCE

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. 

As introducers for specialist instrument insurers Newmoon Insurance Services Ltd, London Flutes have negotiated special discounts for new policyholders using one of the following voucher codes:

  • If your instrument is valued at £1500 or less, use code LF1M3 for one month free cover, via the Natural policy.
  • For instruments values above £1500, use code LF12411 under the Harmonic policy to get 12 months’ insurance for the price of 11.
