I do high quality repair and maintainance for professional flutes. I like to talk with clients about their flute before doing work, so that I can better understand their desires and adjust the flute to match their preferences.
Simple System Flutes
In addition to Boehm flutes, I also work on new and antique simple system flutes (also called Irish or Celtic flutes, due their use in traditional music).
All repairs are done by the hour (I do charged fixed costs for certain tasks). I think this is the most fair way to charge for my work. The materials used in an average repair are of negligible cost, but I will pass on the costs for more expensive materials, such as full sets of pads or gold spring wire.
My shop rate is currently $75 per hour.
