I have been playing flute and piccolo for over 40 years. My business started as a hobby when I began looking for a replacement flute for myself. The more I searched, the more I realized that good, reliable used flutes were very difficult to find and the market was certainly a “buyer beware” proposition.
I began working with a flute professional in town who has educated me over the years as to what to look for when purchasing an instrument and which ones to pass on. As a result, I only buy certain makes and models and the condition has to be stellar.
After buying the instrument I have my professional flute repairman completely clean, adjust, oil and polish when necessary and make any needed repairs before I resell the instrument. I always test-play as a final step in making sure that you are getting the best flute for the money. I will never sell a flute or piccolo that will need new pads in the foreseeable future as that is a major expense that I would not pass on to a buyer.
