The Wm. S. Haynes Company, highly regarded for creating the finest handmade musical instruments, is celebrating over 125 years as the oldest maker of Boehm system flutes in the world. The company has earned an unparalleled reputation for dedication to exceptional quality in manufacturing superbly crafted flutes. In 2010, it expanded to a state-of-the-art workshop in Acton, Massachusetts. Haynes flutes demonstrate the synergy of 21st century technology and the highest artistic integrity.
In the 1930 Haynes Flute Company catalogue, William Sherman Haynes expressed the wish to make a flute that more people could easily acquire. His wish has finally been granted. The Wm. S. Haynes Company is proud to present, the AMADEUS series: an artist quality flute in an accessible price range. Designed by Haynes, the Amadeus line is the first tier of the Wm. S. Haynes Company’s family of flutes. These flutes start in the Haynes Beijing workshop where they are skill-fully crafted by experienced and highly trained flute makers. Upon each flute’s arrival in Acton, Massachusetts, the master flute makers at Haynes check and finish each flute to the highest standard before it leaves the Acton workshop.
Each Amadeus flute is a perfect solution to any advancing student, amateur, or returning player in need of an agile and durable flute with the wide range of tone colours only found in a Haynes flute. Like every Haynes flute, Amadeus has “that sound” — the characteristic purity that is sought after by discriminating flute players the world over…and now, more easily available to inspire you.
This amazing instrument comes with a sterling silver curved and straight headjoint and responds with minimal effort, allowing you to produce gorgeous, soft, velvety tones when you simply whisper into it and maximum resonance and projection when blown with more power. If you are looking for an alto flute that strikes the perfect balance between tone quality, intonation, premium craftsmanship and value, this is the one.
