A Brief History of Haynes


The modern flute has much to thank William Haynes about. His jewellery training and mastery with metals led to the idea of extruding the flute’s tone holes from the silver. The process is now standard practice in flute manufacturing.

Haynes Flutes was founded in 1888 in Boston America, and has from its inception enjoyed a professional audience. In recent years the company has expanded its range to include student models, which benefit from the innovations of Haynes top end flutes.
