The Wm. S. Haynes company is the oldest Boston flutemaker and has been well known and well-respected for many years. Haynes are now re-emerging as one of the leading companies in flute manufacturing, becoming once again one of the leading choices of instrument for flute players worldwide.
We recommend a visit to the Haynes website to view the fascinating timeline of the company since its beginnings in 1888:
'The passion and craftsmanship that has been associated with Wm. S. Haynes flutes since 1888 emanates through every Amadeus flute. The master flutemakers design and work on each flute before it leaves the Boston workshop. Each flute is set-up by a professional at the Boston Haynes Shop right before it is shipped, ensuring the pads are sealed evenly and the mechanism feels crisp.
For decades, discerning flutists have chosen Haynes for "that sound" - a beautiful core with rich colors. Continuing that tradition, Amadeus flutes come standard with a professional Haynes Classic handcut headjoint. The heart of the flute is trusted to the same master headjoint maker who handcuts all Haynes professional headjoints. The Classic headjoint allows you to explore a wide range of tone colors with depth and agility.'
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.
