relief there are many comfortable designs that can be modified to any flute

Check out our "21 Reasons" to choose Lunn Flutes for quality custom modifications for your flute!
|RAISED C# BUTTON
The index finger key can be raised and placed in several more comfortable positions (ie: higher up, closer to the Bb key, further out from the rods) eliminating cramping and significantly improving flexibility.
|LEFT HAND EXTENSIONS
A reconstruction of the left hand keys minimizes wrist angulation by reducing the reach to the A, G and Gb keys with piccolo style finger buttons.
On the offset model it can eliminate strain altogether. On the inline model the lightweight buttons can be extended slightly or very far out as needed to accommodate any reach without adding weight or extra spring tension.Consultation will determine which and how many keys need alteration
|RIGHT HAND BUTTONS
To accommodate a very short thumb, short finger reach or exceptionally long right hand fingers, buttons can be added to the right hand keys to improve your facility.
|UNDERCUT THUMB WING
The Lunn undercut thumb wing is easier, more comfortable and provides stronger balance and control for this critical key.
ANGLED FOOTJOINT CLUSTER
This very popular design brings the footjoint keys closer to your reach by angling the rollers towards the finger. It also eliminates the need for a D# roller and the tendency to rotate the wrist while trying to reach the low notes.
Our gizmo key is designed to your reach, whether over the rollers, the D# key, the traditional spot or wherever you need it.
With a working knowledge of the many difficulties and conditions that can injure your hands, we can design a custom configuration to suit your particular needs.
|COMPLETE KEY REPLACEMENT
If you feel that adding buttons and extensions may lessen the resale value of your flute, we can completely replace the keys we modify, allowing you to restore it to it's original condition whenever you wish.
