In search of a person to repair my flute

In search of a person to repair my flute

I am in California (Santa Barbara) — I have a Williams 5 key flute, in need of an overhaul (new pads, fix a small crack, straighten three pins).

I would greatly appreciate the name of a reputable person to send my flute for repair. America, preferably west coast.

TIA, E

Casey Burns is outside Seattle. He’s a maker; I dunno if he does repair.

You could try joining wodenflute and browsing their resource section.

Hi - Brooke (L.A.)here. There’s a guy named Rod Cameron in Mendocino who (Nick told me)does re-reaming. Perhaps he also does other types of repair.

Re: In search of a person to repair my flute

I spoke to Rod, great guy. He won’t repair other *living* flute maker’s instruments.

But, I found a great guy, Daniel Dietch, in San Fransisco who is going to do it.

Thanks!
