Flute Tips – Gluing Partial Shims

Glue Partial Shims – always glue your partial shims in place. I use liquid shellac, flake shellac dissolved with denatured alcohol in a glass container. When glued in, the partials will not shift when you need to remove the pad for more shims. Don’t forget to mark your shimming at 12:00 on the paper to further help with consistent shim alignment.

For detailed technical information and supplies for performing the above padding technique, please contact:
