Di Zhao

Flute Pro Shop takes great pride in selling the very best examples of the art of flute making.   Therefore, FPS will not devalue any instrument in the inventory, nor will become involved in price wars.  In this way, FPS customers will always know the real price of the instruments.

Di Zhao graduated from Wuhan Conservatory, after which he played in the Hunan Broadcast Orchestra, and later became principal flutist at the National Ensemble Orchestra of China in Beijing.  Emigrating to the United States to pursue his Master’s Degree at Indiana University, Di  attended West Iowa Technical College, the noted repair school .

Mr. Zhao was hired to work for Verne Q. Powell Flutes, where he mastered all aspects of flute production including: padder, headjoint maker, stringer, and body maker. Eventually he was promoted to Powell's Vice President of Quality.  Mr. Zhao left Powell to become Vice President and General Manager at William S. Haynes Flutes. He has worked as a consultant for many other companies, perhaps most notably helping Sonare and Haynes establish factories in China.

Now Mr. Zhao has started his own flute business, has built a flute factory in China, and produces the best quality flutes in China for the next generation. Di Zhao's flutes are played by hundreds of famous flutists around the world.

Flute Pro Shop is proud to Di Zhao flutes, piccolos, and harmony flutes with the confidence that these are the very best of China produced flutes available.
