Haynes flutes are known the world over for “that sound.”  Flutists enjoy the rich, full, colorful, even scaled timbre over a full range of dynamics that is only Haynes.  Haynes master flutemakers constantly assess the needs of flutists to make “that sound” unique to Haynes.  This unique tone has always had beauty of sound at its core, yet it allows for current trends to be a part of the tonal range.
