Hi Pasquale,

I’ve only been able to practice piccolo off and on the last few weeks, but it sounds like a totally different instrument and is much easier to play.  Thanks for taking such care and restoring it to its former glory so that I want to play it now and do it justice.

Best wishes,

Robin

Pasquale is wonderful!  He is highly skilled, professional, friendly, and reliable, and I whole-heartedly recommend him.  He was first recommended to me by a local college flute professor when one of my flutes was seriously damaged shortly before a recital.  Pasquale was so skilled at readjusting the keys and removing the dent that the flute is now as good as new.  He even fixed some loose parts in my case free of charge without my asking him.  I was so happy with the result that I immediately brought my backup flute to him as well.  It had suffered a bad overhaul many years ago, and had very noisy and stiff keys.  It now plays as smoothly and quietly as it did when I first bought it — and it’s just as sparkling clean.  Again Pasquale fixed parts of the case unasked, realigning a section to take some pressure off the keys and hold the flute more securely.

The flutes were both ready when promised, and I found his prices very reasonable.  I always hate feeling pressured to spend more money than I want, so it was a very pleasant surprise when Pasquale actually dissuaded me from the more expensive repairs I initially thought I would need.  I am very grateful for his work and will definitely go back to him next time I need maintenance or repairs on my flutes.

Hi Pasquale,

I just wanted to say that after playing my flute for a few days, I really have an appreciation for the beautiful work you did. The overhaul came out even better than I imagined (it was worth the wait) and sounds wonderful. You truly are a gifted flute restorer in your own right – I’m very happy.  Thanks so much!

Best wishes,

Robin
