Solid Silver Wm. S. Haynes Co Professional Low B Foot Open Hole Flute, Serial #38558
Vintage Haynes Open Hole Flute
This is a very sweet solid silver hand made flute by WM. S. Haynes Company, serial number 38558. The flute was professionally played and maintained over the years and is in very good condition. Its body has no history of major repair. The key features on the flute are in line G, low B foot, open key holes and a solid silver head joint and body. This one in particular was manufactured around 1970. The original owner was very meticulous in his care of this item and his family included the copy of his original owners certificate before handing the instrument off to us.
The flute comes with the original Haynes flute case with plush interior and leather carrying bag. It was recently overhauled in our shop by Straubinger certified repair tech Ben Reece. The restoration included disassemble, cleaning and precise key fitting followed by the precise instillation of all new Straubinger pads as well as new corks and felts. The flute is now in perfect playing condition and ships with original case. If you are looking to get a great hand made pro flute you can not go wrong with a vintage Haynes.
