FCNY Standard Service Guarantee

To support our unwavering commitment to our customers and their instrument service needs, the Flute Center of New York proudly provides all new and certified pre-owned instruments, purchased through FCNY, with our Standard Service Guarantee.

The FCNY Standard Service Guarantee covers any and all minor adjustments impacting the playability and/or mechanical functionality of the instrument for 12 months from original purchase date. This Guarantee is built on top of any pre-existing manufacturer's limited warranties on new instruments.

New, non-certified pre-owned, instruments purchased through our ClubFCNY program will receive an extended 18-month Standard Service Guarantee. 

Additionally, any COA level or above repair completed by the Flute Center of New York comes backed by a 90-day Standard Service Guarantee on any work completed during that repair.
