Quality Repairs Since Gerald Ford was President
UPDATE as of March 26, 2022: Flute Asylum has a new helper for the forseeable future, Ryne Van Horn who was a finisher at Powell flutes for several years. As a result we have appointments for new clients available. In addition we will be taking a limited number of good quality intermediate repairs as an experiment. Many of these instruments come new with pad problems which require quite a bit of work. If you want to have your flute repaired by the shop that does work for flutists in many major symphony orchestras, give us a call!
