Re: Silver flute modification

Hello! To be honest, I have not heard of such a thing. As I understand it, the option to change the flute is not considered? You can look for the options at houseandbeyond.org/best-flute/ or to choose another instrument that would be convenient for you to play. If I were you, I would also contact th...

It is impossible to say exactly how much money it will take to understand what is wrong with your flute and fix it. In any case, don't worry!
