flute repair





Welcome to my
flute repair webpage



I have been active as a flute repairer
for more than 35 years.
As a flute repairer/maker, I've worked at
Eva Kingma's workshop for 18 years, and
have my own repair workshop in Thorn,
Limburg in the Netherlands.

I service and overhaul piccolos, flutes,
altos and bass flutes of all brands, for
professionals, students and amateurs.

Overhauls, services and repairs are carried
out in a professional way and in close
consultation with the customer. Small
problems can mostly be solved immediately.
Through my work at Eva Kingma I have a lot
of experience with Kuiper / Kingma flutes.

Because I play myself, I know how important
the instrument is and enjoying your flute
playing starts with an instrument in
optimal condition.

When I have seen the flute I can advice
what is best to bring the instrument back
to optimal condition and also give a more
exact price quote.
