Home > Directory of Flute Makers

Flute Makers and Dealers

This international directory is the most comprehensive available, but is by no means complete; if you know of a flute maker or dealer who's not included, please and I'll add it to the next version of the guide.

Please note that a listing in the directory does not constitute an endorsement. If you are thinking about purchasing a flute from a particular maker, ask other flute players about that maker's reputation.

If you're looking for a used flute or if you want to sell a flute, check out the Wooden Flute Exchange, a free service on this site for advertising flutes for sale or flutes wanted to buy.

Note: many makers supply soft or hard cases with their flutes, but some don't. If you're looking for a good case, check out the new flute cases page.
