Flute RePad

This service consists of the installation of new pads on your flute. Re-padding is not a Mechanical Overhaul, so your flute should be in good working order prior to re-padding. All actions described in our C.O.A. will be undertaken as well. Turnaround time is usually 5 to 7 days.

Re-pad includes the following:

* Pads used will be appropriate to the instrument - soft, firm, synthetic, or Straubinger
* Springs replaced as required - up to 3 within re-pad fee
* Pivots repaired or replaced at customers expense
* Pads precisely shimmed for airtight seal
* Flute balanced and mechanically aligned
* Head cork fit to the taper of head joint
* Stoppers installed upon request
* Flute play tested
