Arguably makers of the finest handmade flutes in the world! This is a solid sterling silver flute, made at the 61 Hanover St. And the Elm Street workshops c.Verne Q Powell joined Haynes in 1913. This flute is made with drawn tone holes, an offset G and a C foot. Clearly there was a C-B trill which was converted to a right hand lever B-Bb trill. Standard cut embouchure for the richest most warm tone imaginable.
Gold springs give the action a light springy response. Mechanically this flute was found in very good condition. There were some dents and dings and tool marks from a previous repair which have all been cleaned up and barely noticeable. This superb instrument was just restored with all new pads, new corks and felts. Who worked at the Haynes flute Co.
Looks and plays beautifully with a dark rich tone. The design is very delicate with smaller tone holes and the Louis Lot style teardrop D# key and the delicate cross over C-C# key on the footjoint. Truly a carry over of the French flute makers of the late 19th century. This lovely instrument was made during the collaboration of Wm S Haynes and Verne Q Powell and many of Powell's fine craftmanship is found on the flute.
Powell didn't leave the Haynes Company until 1926. A flute of this quality is truly a find! Plays so beautifully and effotlessly.018 and standard embouchure give a real depth and personality to the tone. Sounding length 23 5/8 or 602 mm and plays exactly at A=440 with the original ring still on the head joint. The ring can be removed and head shortened for playing at higher pitches, but as a piece of history and collectors item the sounding length was left intact. Included is a replacement French case, a new padded case cover, cloth and cleaning stick. Comes with the original silver tenon covers. The sound on this flute is incredible. Sterling silver in it's purest form is what gives the tone so much depth and character. If you are a serious flute player looking to upgrade or even want a second Haynes flute to use as a backup, you won't want to miss out on this deal. Perfect for any serious flutist or doubler. Hands down this flute can be used in any professional situation. I wouldn't hesitate to concertize using this flute!
