OUR PRO WOODWINDS
Reed instruments and flutes are staples of bands and orchestras. They can be complicated and finicky; we’re here to take you through choosing, maintaining, and servicing the right woodwind for you.
Quality & Performance
Rick’s carries only high-quality woodwind instruments for our customers in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. We make our decisions about which items to carry at the semi-pro and pro instrument level as a team: each model is closely scrutinized for quality, longevity, performance, and overall ability to meet the strict demands of our staff. Years of experience mean our opinion counts, which is why manufacturers have actually altered entire model lines based on our recommendations and requests. At Rick’s and Bravo, we think about the best interests of our customers. We want you to have a positive shopping experience with the expectation that you will leave more educated about – and completely satisfied with – your woodwind instrument purchase.
