Featured Product

Wm. S. Haynes Co. Amadeus AF600

The passion and craftsmanship that has been associated with Wm. S. Haynes flutes since 1888 emanates through every Amadeus flute. The master flute makers 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 flautists have chosen Haynes for "that sound" - a beautiful core with rich colours. Continuing that tradition, Amadeus flutes come standard with a professional Haynes Classic handcut head joint. The heart of the flute is trusted to the same master head joint maker who hand cuts all Haynes professional head joints. The Classic head joint allows you to explore a wide range of tone colours with depth and agility.

• Silver Haynes Classic head joint
• Open hole
• Silver plated body and mechanism
• ‘Y’ shaped key cup arms
