DeFord flutes are made by one of the most respected flute makers in the United States of America. Emerson DeFord has made more hand crafted flutes than anyone! It is a strong statement, but then again he has produced flutes under such brand names as DeFord and Emerson since 1952.
The years have come and gone, but still this master flute maker sits behind his bench hammering and cutting each and every part of this instrument, with approximately 380 parts in all. All DeFord Flutes and Piccolos are 100% made in the U.S.A.
