Her production includes traverso flutes from the early baroque three joint flutes up to the first Boehm system.
As a renown specialist in woodwind conservation she has been working for private and public collections (musée de la Musique in Paris, Smithsonian Institution in Washington, Metropolitan Museum in New York).

Claire Soubeyran likes to work in close collaboration with the flutists and she constantly improves the quality of her flutes in order to match their expectations
She received, in 1994 the Musicora award for the creation of student traverso and, in 1998, the Musicora and craftmanship ministry award for her re creation of a conical boehm system wooden flute.”
