The Flute Dryer was invented to help the everyday flute player gain more playtime with their favorite Native American flutes and protect the investment they've made in flutes. Wetting out is an issue that we've all faced and, while some flute makers are addressing this issue in the construction of the flute, the majority of the flutes in our collections don't have these new methods built-in. That's where the Flute Dryer comes in. 

Depending on how a flute is made, once you wet it out, it may be done for the rest of the day. This Flute Dryer gives you back that playtime by drying your flute out in as little as 2 minutes! 




  • This device has a solid, wooden box-shaped base that houses a 1-amp fan that blows cool, dry air into your flute. This dramatically reduces the time in which it takes to "air out" your flute after you've saturated it.
  • The small size of the Flute Dryer makes it easy to transport to gigs, camping or flute circles! 
  • It plugs in via USB so you can use an adapter to plug it into the wall, or directly into your computer or power bank if you're on the go!
  • The holder at the top is adjustable to accommodate both small and large flutes so you can use this for the majority of your flute collection!
  • The Flute Dryer speeds up dry time which takes some of the headache and long wait times out of proper flute maintenance. Dry your flutes before you hang them back up! 
  • The biggest benefit is that it supports the overall health and longevity of your flutes when using this after each play (even if your flute hasn't reached full wet-out)! 


How does it work? 

  1. Remove the bird from your flute (or obstruct the airflow with a piece of leather, etc.) 
  2. Place the flute upside down on the Flute Dryer and rest the mouthpiece on the rubber opening. If you have a smaller flute, there is a rod below the opening to catch them. 
  3. Turn the fan on and let it work its magic! 
  4. Under 5 minutes seems to be the sweet spot, but it greatly depends on the flute. Check it and see how your flute is responding.

As I have increased the length of my practicing time, the dryer has become an important tool in preserving and caring for my flutes. Well designed, and another quality Horizon product offered to help and assist in our flute journey. Highly recommend.

This Dryer is a Game Changer!

I got the N.A. Flute Dryer for my husband's birthday. It has exceeded expectations in dealing withe the dreaded watering out. It arrived quickly, was well packaged, looks nice and works well. Thank you for making this great product!

Really Useful Device!

I am extremely happy with my purchase of the NAF Dryer. Such a clever device to help with a common problem for NAF players. It is compact enough for bringing to gigs, quiet, but it works quickly and well. It worked with one of my USB battery packs, which adds to the portabilty-no AC power needed! Works on many different size instruments, as well. Great product and great customer service from Horizons Flute Store!

Very effective and well worth the money

Since I received my NAF dryer about 2 weeks ago, I have used it extensively along with my daily practice regimen. It has definitely reduced my wet-out time as I have it drying for 5 minutes or so while I play on a different NAF. When the current NAF wets-out I put that one on the dryer and go back to the first flute. The design of the NAF Dryer is well thought out, but could have used a bit more attention with the fit and finish of the wood planks and panels. There are rough patches on the corners and edges of the wood and the dark stained panels on the front and back can be particularly rough. As other reviewers have stated, the USB cable is extremely short at only 10" instead of the 24" needed. I managed to solve this issue by buying a 10 foot USB extension cable off of Amazon for $12.99. It now works like a charm. I highly recommend the NAF Dryer as it is essential equipment for NAF players and a much needed quality of life product.
