This 1960s Golden Era Haynes Flute was custom built for a professional performer with an amputated ring finger on his right hand. The flute & its modification was made custom during the original build by the flute maker Mr. Deveau at Haynes Flutes in 1959/60.


We have original records of purchase to keep with the history of the flute. 


The flute has recently been restored, set with all new felt pads, keys properly fitted, and other issues resolved. 


Along with the restoration, we commissioned a new open hole D key from Haynes to improve the flute so anyone can comfortbly play it.

The original D key was designed with a french Y-arm on the top of the original D key this makes it slightly awkward to press down on. The new open-holed D key feels just like any other open hole key. Both keys can be interchanged by a technician easily. In addition, we asked Haynes to keep the extention adaptor on the new key allowing for the extention to be used with either key. The Finger extention and open hole key will function in combination with a standard  plug in place. Simply removing the extention key the key mechanism is completely functional as a standard flute.
