One of approx. 15 wooden flutes manufactured by Haynes in the late 1990s in collaboration with Jacques Zoon. Selling due to upgrading my flute. This is a modern wood instrument embodying the flute sonority favoured by romantic composers. A truly unique instrument now discontinued from production. It has an improved scale, a dense grenadilla wood wall with rich depth of sound & excellent projection. A satisfying playing experience, totally different to any other wooden flute on the market. B-foot, open holes, heavy wall (no split-E). I came in to this flute in a neglected state and invested a lot to restore it to it's current working condition: overhauled in 2017, regularly serviced, it now has all new pads, cork fittings and a smooth, reliable mechanism. I have kept the wood well hydrated. Compatible with wooden head-joints from other makers, particularly Mancke. Available to try in Estonia/Finland. I'll also be visiting Switzerland (Geneva) March-May.
