Nagahara Flutes

Professional Handmade Flutes

All Nagahara Flutes are handmade in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, using a combination of the Traditional Boston craftsmanship technique and Japanese ingenuity. Each and every Nagahara flute features soldered toneholes, French-style pointed arms, the patented Nagahara Thumb Key, the Nagahara Pinless Mechanism and a custom, hand-cut headjoint. All headjoints are exclusively made by founder and owner of  Nagahara Flutes, Kanichi Nagahara.


Nagahara offers three distinct flute models: the Standard , Full Concert, and Galway models. Additionally, we offer the Kanichi Nagahara (K.N.) exclusive flute made by the master craftsman himself, featuring the flute model of your choice & all gold material options (gold tube, toneholes & mechanism).


Additional custom options available include: underslung Split-E mechanism, C# trill, High E Facilitator (H.E.F.), D# roller, Wearless Mechanism installation, a wide range of tubing and mechanism alloys, Pitch (A=440, A=442, or A=444), and custom engravings. 


Playing a Nagahara has been described by many to be “liberating” and “a dream come true”.  Precision, artistry, and comfort is what Nagahara strives for with every flute made, enabling freedom of expression to every flutist’s voice.​
