Q: Why are your prices so much less than comparable professional handmade flutes?
A: Being a one-man shop is the key. My shop is attached to the side of my garage. I have no employees to pay and the cost of living in the Midwest is much lower than the East Coast. Low overhead and depressed precious metals prices all contribute to my ability to produce quality flutes at affordable prices.
Q: How can I be assured that the flute you make for me will play as well as your demo flute?
A: Every flutist that has ordered a flute after trying my demo flute has said that their new flute plays better than the demo. Headjoint selection plays a huge role in how the new flute plays. I will work with a customer until he/she has a headjoint that suits them perfectly.
