Modifications made to new industrial recorders, apart from routine maintenance operations like cleaning,

oiling or replacing joints, will automatically cancel the maker's guarantee.

Repairing  of a split .................................................................................................................................................................................from

Whether the flute cracked by itself or accidentally (shock, fall, somebody sitting down on it...), the slot is often repairable, or at least consolidable. The place of the slot is important to define its gravity : a split on the head joint (subject to breath heat and moisture) is more problematic than a split in the middle or foot joint.

Bonding and/or ligation of the slot if it is possible

Consult me for a larger slot (design of a sleeve, installation of a ferrule ...)
