Silver flute modification

Post by bizzielizzie »

Hi, I have a Yamaha solid silver flute but my hand is very small (glove size 6.5) and I am having trouble reaching the low C key to play it properly as I keep touching the D key en route to stretching across. My 'pinky' is only 4,5cm long! My teacher thinks the best way forward is to have my flute bottom keys modified to allow me to play them more easily. I am having trouble getting anyone to even consider modifying it. Does anyone know the contact details of a reputable silver flute maker that I might be able to contact and ask for help? I have tried via Just Flutes and Yamaha UK/Europe and they have not felt able to help. Thanks
