Our Trial Program


Selecting a flute or headjoint is a personal experience that requires time with the instruments. Our free trial program allows you to test instruments before you make a decision.

Please note: In accordance with CDC and MN Dept of Health guidelines, Schmitt Music has resumed in-store trials for all instrument categories. Instruments are sanitized after each demonstration. Contact us for an appointment or stop in to the store! We are also happy to schedule a phone or virtual consultation, or curate a selection of instruments and ship directly to you for in-home trial.

How it works

We will ship up to 2 flutes and 3 headjoints to your home so you can compare to your current instrument, bring them to a lesson, and truly get to know each instrument.


  • You will have 7 days from the date of delivery to try your selections.
  • Fill out a short contact form to request a trial.
  • We will respond to your inquiry to confirm your selections.
