About All Flutes Plus
Any successful business thrives not only on the quality of the goods they provide but also on the quality of service they are able to offer both prior to and after your purchase.
We have been serving the flute community for 40 years and in that time we have developed a range of services designed to make your experience of flute playing as easy, happy and trouble-free as possible. Whether you are a total beginner or a seasoned professional, the level of our service and attention remains the same.
We have a specialist team of friendly, dedicated and knowledgeable individuals whose combined skills as orchestral players, soloists and teachers, allow for expert advice on instrument choice and repertoire to play.
We have a purpose-fit testing room available so that you can try flutes in comfort to your heart’s content. There is room enough for extra pairs of ears too, so you’re welcome to bring people to listen. We’ll also be on call to sit in and help out.
We have an in-house workshop, run by two experienced and very well-respected repairers, Eliana, and Megumi.
Georgia and Aoife are our Sheet Music Specialists, and they keep a tidy stock of all flute repertoire, including all exciting new releases. If we don’t have it in stock, it can be ordered, so please do ask!

All Flutes Team
Nigel joined his brother Trevor at All Flutes Plus in Dorset Street, London W1, shortly after the opening of the store in 1990. This was a radical new concept in the musical instrument industry – a true specialist flute centre!
As a flute and woodwind repairer and technician, Trevor’s focus was building a fantastic workshop and repair facility to service the London professional’s. The reputation spread rapidly and enabled the development of the flute range, offering flautists and potential flautists an ever growing range of instruments from many of the world’s finest makers. This is where Nigel comes in: Being a musician, albeit a trumpet player, but also with business management and customer care experience, Nigel was able to build on the core ethos of All Flutes Plus as a specialist company. Understanding the needs of musicians Nigel was able to put real customer service in place and build an ever-growing and loyal customer base, many of whom have become firm friends over the years.
Nigel’s priorities at All Flutes Plus have always been to work with staff as colleagues who are highly skilled and can offer customers real specialist advice and help and share the same commitment to service and integrity.
Now, some 30 years on and having overseen the move of premises to our fantastic Warren Street location and showroom, Nigel is often in demand for his wealth of experience and knowledge of the flutes and the flute world.
