Linda, my daughter, was elated to receive her flute from having it repaired at Cincinnati Fluteworks. It was even finished before they originally said it would be. She was most pleased with the quality of the repair and the appearance of the flute. Linda is in University, so I suggested she take it to her flute professor for him to check it out for her. I phoned him and he pointed out several specific things (that I, the non-flutist-Dad) didnt understand, but made the point that the technique and materials used in the repair he usually sees only on high end Symphony type professional flutes. He also said that the tone was "awesome" and better than before. Ok, now Im impressed. The people there I spoke with were polite and professional, and on different occasions did several extra things for my daughter that werent charged and quite beyond - in a good way!- the realm of what Id expect from a repair shop. Pat North followed up with us a few weeks after delivering the flute and I was glad to give her a good report and a sincere Thank You! Lindas first choice of Grad Schools in flute performance chose her to attend in the Fall. I am confident that her performance is due in part to the great improvement of her flute by Cincinnati Fluteworks repair.
