Welcome to the homepage of Eva Kingma, flutemaker. Our company exists since 1975. But we are 'standing on the shoulders of giants' such as, for example, Dirk Kuiper, Albert Cooper and Bickford Brannen. We specialize in manufacturing low flutes. The innovative "Key-on-Key mechanism" and the patented Kingma System® are designs of Eva Kingma.



The full range from the Alto flute to the Subcontrabass flute is made in our workshop in The Netherlands. Our flutes are hand-made and this allows us to be as flexible as possible. We are dedicated towards building instruments that suit the requirements and physical needs of our customers.
