There are some minor surface scratching as expected through general use, however this is purely aesthetic and will not affect the quality of tone produced. There is some tarnishing to the flute, which can be removed next time the flute is fully serviced. This instrument has been through the workshop prior to sale and is in excellent playing order.
Condition can be highly subjective. This information is to be taken as a guide only. E&OE.

About Wm S Haynes
William S. Haynes first established his name as a flute maker through his dedication to exacting detail in every instrument that left his workshop. Then, in 1913, he created a breakthrough in design that set Haynes flutes even more above the rest. This breakthrough, which resulted in a patent, corrected a design flaw that had troubled flutemakers and players up until that time. Through a combination of classic detailed hand-craftsmanship and innovation in design and technique, Haynes set a standard that prevails to this day at the flute workshop that still bears his name.
