About Our Repair Team
Yongin Namkung, Master Technician
Get your flute repaired and serviced by the very best: Mr. Yongin Namkung will work with you directly to fully customize your instrument to fit your playing style and needs.
Master Technician Yong-In Namkung has recently relocated to New York with his family after building an outstanding reputation at his own shop in Seoul, South Korea. Originally trained as a flutist, Yong-In was a member of the South Korean Airforce Band for three years before moving to Vermont to work at the Landell Flute factory.
He later received additional repair training by Brannen Brothers, Muramatsu, David Straubinger flutes and pads, Verne Q. Powell, Sankyo, and Burkart Flutes&Piccolos, and went on to become the Professor of Flute Making and Repair at Kuyungwon and Injae Universities. Upon returning to Seoul, Mr. Namkung opened up shop in the Seochodong/Seoul Arts Center district and quickly established himself as one of the most important figures in the Korean flute scene.
He developed his own line of student and intermediate instruments - NK Flutes - and had a full-service shop in Seoul, where he was the exclusive Korean importer of Powell, Brannen, and Burkart flutes, among many others.
