Unless stated otherwise, all of our pre-owned, ex-demo and ex-display instruments are cleaned and checked, set up or serviced in our workshop prior to sale.
This flute was made around the late 80s and has been looked after very well meaning it is in very good overall condition. The Deveau scale is a modern scale and the tuning of the instrument is good.
This flute is in excellent condition with a very small amount of tarnish to the silver on the A and E keys. There are some very small dents on the back of the headjoint and on the blowing edge of the lip-plate, but these do not affect the playability of the flute. The flute has been prepared for sale in our repair studio.
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.
