Reviews from Real Customers:


I honestly didn’t know that customer service like this existed anymore. The Flute Center of New York (in particular my contact Katie) was a wealth of knowledge and was not at all deterred by my lack of knowledge of what I needed(I was buying an intermediate flute for my young but talented flautist.) They listened, recommended, and over delivered in every way.

Melissa K.

Wholeheartedly recommend the Flute Center. From the helpful videos on the website to the flutists who help you on the phone, very happy with the whole trial process and the customer service along the way. Fast shipping and flutists on the phone to answer questions (if I want a slightly darker tone or I am interested in a thick-walled flute, what else do you have?) - along with trying out different flutes and head joints in my house to compare and contrast. A+ experience.

Claire S.

Definitely recommend them. My son is at UNC-School of the Arts, a high school conservatory. When he began 10th grade this August it was obvious he would need a new flute. The Flute Center of New York was a delight to work with. The staff was insanely patient through the process and encouraged and suggested different combinations. They made the experience seamless and trouble-free.

Fantastic customer service during our in home trial and subsequent purchase

Whether you are local to NYC or not, FCNY is a must-consider seller if you are in the market for any kind of flute, used or new, professional or beginner. They have such an exhaustive inventory that you really will have a hard time NOT finding the perfect instrument for you. I've ventured and trialed with various other sellers this past year, both large and small, but in the end I only made purchases with FCNY because of the extent of their inventory and ease of setting up trials. You don't have to take my word for it though, you'll soon find out for yourself I'm sure!

The Flute Center of NY has the absolute best team working for them. They are friendly, extremely helpful and beyond amazing. This shop is the place for all your flute needs! I honestly wish I could rate them 10000000 stars! Best flute shop in the world, hands down!
