Armstrong Flutes: carefully crafted in the Hoosier State

In 1931, William Teasdale Armstrong opened a small flute repair shop in Elkhart, Indiana. Within a few short years, William’s dedication to quality earned him a reputation as a master craftsman, and professional musicians began requesting custom-made instruments. Throughout the mid-20th century, Armstrong Flutes thrived. Eventually, William passed on the business to his son Edward, who recognized a need among student musicians for high-quality, affordable instruments. In the 1970s, Armstrong teamed with Albert Cooper to develop a new flute scale for 440Hz tuning, which was applied to Anderson’s 102, 103, and 104 student model flutes. Today, Anderson continues to focus on crafting top-notch student model flutes in their Elkhart-based facility.
