Wecome to our site! You will find here a special, carefully selected inventory of instruments that through years of experience servicing, playing and hearing professionals play are instruments that I know will play well with a great sound at every price point. The step up and intermediate flutes are most teacher's top choices.
I began as a band teacher followed by becoming a certified top tier repair person. I now have decades of experience. After seeing so many flutes coming in that were new and in need of a lot of work to make them play right I began selling them myself and have grown along with our great Colorado flute community.
Choosing a new flute or piccolo is sometimes a daunting experience because there is so much out there it can be confusing. By nature, the flute with its intricate mechanism along with all the choices, different materials they are made from and extra keys makes for the need for flute specialty shops! -With an expert to guide you in this important decision. Whether its your first open hole flute or custom flute to play in a professional orchestra, when you come in to my shop, I or my assistant (or both) will help guide you on the journey of playing and testing to help you choose the right fit. We critically listen for the best sound together. Many flutes come with a choice of headjoint that will personalize your new flute even more. The fit of the headjoint to the body is extremely important to the sound and when you are here I can size the head to assure optimal vibrations and fullest sound. I can custom adjust spring tension on the keys to your preference.
The room we play in has great acoustics and is an excellent place in which to test instruments. There is room for your teacher, parent or other trusted listener to come and help as well.
We offer a week trial to allow you to get to know the new instrument better and solidify your choice. Of course, we do ship as well after a phone consult if needed and can send more than one instrument.
Check out the instruments here on the site-there's several new additions like Brannen flutes with the Lafin headjoints. Burkart custom flutes and piccolos which they are are now paired with Mancke headjoints.
Special sale items and pre-owned instruments are listed and is being updated all the time.
