HELP, I Want One!

Professionally Being Repadded by Saxquest

This is a beautiful, great condition late 40's vintage William S Haynes flute, serial number 18724. This flute features a sterling silver headjoint and body. It is a closed hole flute, with offset G, and low C. This instrument is currently in our repair shop getting the full preferential treatment. It will come in all new pads, all cleaned up to shine like new, and in perfect playing condition.


Haynes has long been the go-to for advancing students and professionals. This flute is in excellent, original condition. The silver body and foot show no dents or dings. It is a little tarnished currently, but we will clean that up during the overhaul process and it will come looking fantastic. The original silver headjoint has one little nick in the embouchure plate which we will attempt to smooth out, and I'll have new photos showing the end result with the repad is completed.


Once we finish putting new pads and corks in this flute, and give it a pro adjustment, it will play beautifully again. This is a great option for those pro players that have a hard time adjusting to the French open hole style, especially doublers. Does ship in a hard case.
