Arthur Haswell Flute Repairs
STUDENT, STEP-UP, & INTERMEDIATE
AN ANNUAL CHECK OVER will set up keywork and sort out minor problems. This should not take more than an hour's work, charged at a rate of £10 per quarter hour.
A SERVICE EVERY 2-3 YEARS will keep your flute or piccolo in good playing order. We disassemble, clean, oil & regulate the flute, removing dents and repairing bent keywork etc. During reassembly we renew felts, corks, head cork and springs as required. Pads may be replaced (£10 each), and all the dozens of tiny touches applied that will bring your flute back to good playing order.
AN OVERHAUL WILL SEE YOUR FLUTE OR PICCOLO returned to its optimum 'as-new' playing condition. Keywork will be tightened to remove play, and all new pads, felts, corks, & springs fitted. Additional work may be required to remedy faults associated with a well-used flute.

WE WORK TO A DIARY, so it is essential to pre-book.
AS ONE OF THE LEADING UK INDEPENDENT SPECIALISTS, we bring the highest uncompromised standards to our repair work on flutes and piccolos. We do not work on other instruments, believing that the care and subtley demanded by Boehm's mechanism requires complete dedication.
We repair for flautists throughout the United Kingdom and the European Union, many of whom send their instruments by express courier. We use our own boxes and packaging to ensure your flute arrives just as it left us - in perfect working order.
