The Quality Control – When a flute is produced during the manufacturing process, it is important to ensure that the quality of the flute is at its very-best along with capable of producing proper sound. When the musician plays the flute, the instrument tends to move in each direction allowing the flute maker to check the instrument quality on a constant basis. First the flute maker ensures that the shape, size, key positioning and tone holes are in proper position. This allows the flute maker to fit together all the components. For the sound quality, a musician is asked to check how the sound is according to their demand. If the musician isn’t happy about the sound quality, then the flute maker makes proper changes in order to fulfill the musicians demand.
However, it is the duty of the musician to make sure that the flute stays in top-notch condition. The musician needs to keep the flute clean from the accumulation of dirt and corrosion. The interior portion of the flute must involve swabbing after every time it is played. This helps to remove the moisture trapped inside the instrument.

Whether the musician plays jazz, rock, or experimental music by the use of electronic flutes, the only changes required for the flute maker is the different sound it is capable of making.
The future of flutes seems to be stable and heading in the right direction allowing professionals to create popular flute music in all over the world.
