Caring for your Flute
To get the most out of your rented flute, it's important to keep the instrument in good condition. Here are some helpful pointers.
- Handle the flute with clean, dry hands.
- When assembling the flute, hold it by the edges and not by the keys.
- Clean the flute as soon as possible after it has been played. This will help to keep the pads in good condition.
- Disassemble the flute and return it to its case when not in use.
- Store the flute at room temperature.
- Using the same cloth to clean the inside and outside of the flute. Instead, use a separate cloth for each.
- Using metal polish on the flute. This can damage the finish. Instead, polish it gently with a soft, dry cloth.
- Lubricating the flute. This should not be necessary; if the action isn't working smoothly, consider taking the flute for service.
