Custom Handmade Headjoints
The first breath of air that touches the flute establishes the relationship between the player and their music. This is the beginning of a partnership that should bring soaring joy, profound passion, and lasting artistic satisfaction. The subtlest of nuances in a headjoint can affect the delicate balance of sound, response and projection that every headjoint maker strives to achieve.
The master headjoint makers at Haynes are highly trained flutists, who have the focus and tenacity required to handcraft every Haynes headjoint into an architype of the Haynes sound. This is not a task for the faint-hearted. The end results are artistically stimulating headjoints which offer flutists color, response, depth, imagination and vibrancy.
Haynes offers two styles Custom Handmade headjoints, the P Cut and the N Cut. These siblings have much in common, yet each has its unique traits. Each style is available in a variety of material combinations including silver (.014, .016”), Fusion Inside, Fusion Outside, 10k rose gold, 14k rose gold, 18k white gold (wall only), 19.5k rose gold and platinum.
The P Cut was named in honor of Piedmont Street, in the center of Boston, where Haynes workshop was located from 1953 to 2010. Like its namesake, the P style provides a stable road for the flutist to travel and discover new aspects of sound.
The N Cut is named after the Nagog wetlands that surround the current Haynes workshop in Acton, Massachusetts. In nature there is beauty and complexity, which is reflected in the N style. The N encourages flutists to move off the beaten path and explore.
