All flute and piccolo Clean, Oil, and Adjusts are warranted against defects in parts replaced and workmanship for a period of 90 days. All flute and piccolo overhauls are warranted against defects in parts replaced and workmanship for a period of 12 months. Any warranty work can usually be addressed in a 1 hour while-you-wait “Quick-fix” appointment. The warranty doesn’t cover parts being bent or torn through abuse, accident, or neglect of the instrument. It doesn’t cover parts that weren’t replaced during maintenance by FluteWorks Seattle. It doesn’t cover the wear and tear that happens over a year that would be addressed in a yearly COA.

Erik did a phenomenal job with the COA on my flute! It actually plays better than when it was new. He even solved a problem I had been dealing with for years-one that had me thinking of selling my flute. I am grateful for his artistry and skill in flute repair and give him my highest recommendation.

FluteWorks Seattle is amazing! Erik Nugent is experienced and professional. I recently shipped my Yamaha 700 flute to him for a COA and it came back like new! He has overhauled it before and I am always impressed at how he brings it to mint condition. Highly recommend!
