Repair Services

There's nothing scarier than sending your instrument to a technician you don't know! I get it! I had to do that too!

And it's even worse when you have no idea what's going on, so you end up trusting a total stranger.

Don't worry ever again. We've got it under control!

Exciting things are happening at Pettry Piccolos! We're thrilled to announce an expanding partnership with Flutistry.  Pettry Piccolos has been growing quite steadily, and this partnership will provide the support we need as a small business to focus on our strengths:

World Class Piccolo Making and Repair

I'm always striving to provide better service and that means making instruments perform at their best! In order to do this, I need to spend less time on administrative tasks like emails, billing, scheduling and communications. This is the exciting part! Flutistry will be providing their top-notch customer service on my behalf so that I can spend my time coordinating with my team so that we can do what we do best:

 

Crafting Instruments

100% of our work will still be happening in our private, Atlanta-based shop. The perk is that you no longer have to wait several days for emails, phone calls, or invoices. You'll continue to receive unmatched repair services and our trademark  flute-nerd curbside and coffeeshop chats we are known for. A win-win for everyone!

"I couldn't believe that Adam had actually sent my own flute back to me. My [flute] looks beautiful and the sound is so gorgeous! I wouldn't trust anyone else!"

Clean, Oil, & Adjust

It's been a year since it's been serviced right? And you're working a little bit harder than usual... Easy!

I take it apart, clean it, give it a gentle polish, and change all of your key oil.

I check and adjust every pad and key for a perfect seal, and a buttery feel under the fingers. Playing should be easy.

I change the headjoint cork. NO ONE likes mold in their flute!

Lastly, I give it a thorough test play. Only a pro player can feel if it's ready. Luckily, I am one! Mozart to Jolivet. Got it!

 

Overhauls... My Specialty!

You've been playing a LOT, and it's just too much work! Pads are getting old, and your flute feels sloppy. Happens all the time!

I take it apart, clean it, and take care of any dents or cosmetic issues. 

I make sure the keys are fitting tight, but disappear under your fingers.

Toneholes should still be flawless. If not? No biggie! I've got it.


Pads affect your sound. So I help you choose what's best for your flute and for your style of playing.

Installation and finishing second to none. Period.

Like new shoes, new parts need to be broken in. I take care of this for you so your instrument is stable and reliable.
