NK Flutes (www.nkflutes.com)

both located in NYC, but both also are able to take repairs by mail 
 

Flutes need to be taken to a repair technician at least once a year (twice for the more active player) for a clean, oil, and adjust, also known as a COA. During a COA, like the name suggests, the flute is cleaned, the mechanism is oiled, and any leaks in the keypads are adjusted. COAs help to maintain the function of the instrument instead of waiting until it needs a much more serious repair or complete overhaul.

Stylish and functional instrument accessories, including microfiber polishing cloths, swabs, flute bags, and cases.
