|Etudes and stand in the repair office for the play-in.|

What happens if she discovers a problem during the play in? Well, she told us that she would then set the flute aside and wait a day before making adjustments -- just to let the flute settle back in after being played. She told us, "After a repair, if there is a problem, it should be for me -- not for the customer." So, just as new flutes are played in during the finishing process, the same holds true for repairs. Rachel makes sure that after a repair is done at her bench, she'll know that everything is functioning as it should once the flute is back in the customer's hands -- literally!
