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.
Student flutes £95.00
Intermediate flutes £130.00
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.
Student: £250.00 including set of Pisoni Lucien pads
Intermediate: £395.00 including set of Pisoni Lucien pads
WE BRING ALL OUR SKILLS as restorers of vintage hand-made flutes to the maintainance of modern professional flutes. Many of these flutes need similar attention, i.e. in the removal of wear which can make for a hesitant action, and the subtle adjustment of padding.
Service from £160.00
Overhaul from £595.00 (includes set of Pisoni Sound Pads. For Pisoni S2 pads [excellent replacement for Straubingers] add £80).
TO ALLOW FOR ANY ADJUSTMENTS necessary due to natural settling, and to give you complete peace-of-mind, serviced flutes and piccolos come with 6-months' free maintenance, overhauls 12-months.
SPECIFIC REPAIRS (soldering; restoring bent keywork; etc.) and on-the-spot adjustments will be charged at a rate of £10 per quarter hour.
WE WORK TO AN OVERFLOWING diary, so it is essential to pre-book all repairs.
WE OPERATE WORKSHOP WINDOWS during school/college holidays for regular student and intermediate services and set-ups.
Please pre-book for our next service window 19-25 February 2018.
