Flute head joint dent repair cost

Post by Annie_flute26952 »

Today I dented my flute head joint on a table. The dent is fairly large and is on the opposite side of the lip plate. I wonder how much it would cost to have it repaired.

As long as the lip plate itself is not damaged, it should be a relatively easy repair. Often, large round dents are easier to remove than small dents that place a crease in the metal. Prices will vary depending upon the severity and each repair shop has their own pricing but I would guess in the range of $25-$50.
