Welcome to the

David and Nina Shorey

Antique and Handmade Flutes Homepage

Regular visitors will notice the addition of "Handmade" flutes to our title.


Thanks to our work with the great French flutes of the 19th century, we have gained an increasing interest in the next development in flutemaking, namely the 20th century flutes of Haynes and Powell, and their offshoots.

Since many of these instruments are practically modern, we have enjoyed interacting with a larger group of players than are drawn to earlier times.

If you purchase one of our instruments, we want to be sure that your experience is an enduringly happy one. We have been selling vintage flutes for 30 years this April. We have found new homes for over 800 instruments, all of them extraordinary, and the flutes were good too.

We welcome your visit, your potential friendship, and your possible business.
