Fusion technology is the art of combining Gold and Silver to form two distinct layers of metals. In the case of the Q Fusion, the 9K gold makes up one-quarter of the tube on the headjoint, body and foot (outside layer), and the Sterling Silver makes up of the other three-quarters of the tube (inside layer). The result is a sound that has the best of both Gold and Silver, consisting of a wide range of tonal colours that can be produced with incredible flexibility. This is not to be confused with Plating which usually coats the material underneath with a much thinner layer of precious metal.
Each Haynes Q Series flute is modeled after the innovative and legendary Haynes Custom flutes. Made to the highest standards, each Q Series flute comes with a hand-cut Haynes Classic headjoint. These are cut by the very same master headjoint makers that cut the popular Piedmont style headjoint on every Haynes Custom instrument.
