Sergey Klepikov, founder of S.Kotel, began his flutemaking career in 1992. He spent twenty years working for major Boston flute manufacturers, including Verne Q. Powell and Wm. S. Haynes Co., making flutes and piccolos. After many years of experimenting with wood, precious metals and other materials, Sergey is introducing flute head joints, made of different kinds of exotic woods with excellent acoustic properties.
All wood is carefully selected, seasoned and treated to resist changes in temperature and humidity.
