  • Special note to Bb flute purchasers! Please get it fixed by a professional repairer. Most people seem to be able to get these out with their fingers.
  • Given that the pads were torn on the front edge, it's fairly safe to conclude that the tears came from either repeated long strokes of the cloth wiping the tubing and catching the pads, or it could have been from attempts to clean the sides of the tone holes with too much cloth. But let's look at both options While there are lots of flute repairs you can do yourself, some are so complex or severe that they will require you to bring your instrument to a repair person.
  • To do this, slide one sheet of paper without adhesive! Gluing broken keys back onto the body of the flute is a temporary fix at best. There are no serious downsides: You can still play c-natural by all the other means you do have to keep your thumb in place for notes below c just cover it over with tape if you find you don't like it!
  • All you need to do is flip it behind where its sticking out of. Close-up of un-gummed paper. Keyed flutes can have holes offset too.
