Whether you’re just looking for a Clean, Oil, and Adjust (COA) or a full customization, we can help you.

What is COA? (Clean, Oil and Adjust)?

This is the basic service for a professional level Flute. The technician will completely
disassemble the Flute, unpin the keys, and clean the rods. Any tarnish will be removed by hand polishing or buffing. New oil is applied. The Flute and keys are then reassembled, and final adjustments are made. The COA is completed with a playing test.

How often should I have my Flute serviced?

It is recommended that you have a COA completed at least once per year to keep your Flute in its best playing condition. If the Flute is in frequent use, it may need a second COA throughout the year.
