Admired in all School Bands

This flute carries a well deserved reputation for quality and reliability. Whenever you enter a room with other flutists and reveal that you own a Haynes flute, waters will part.

More and more school bands are now featuring brightly colored instruments amongst the assembly of traditional colors. Masterpiece flutes are a welcome addition to school bands, because they are easy to play in tune and attract more children to learning music.

Hear What it Sounds Like.

The Haynes Amadeus is rewarding to play because of its quick, lively response. It yields a bright tone that is sweet and clear.

The recordings below let you hear how good this flute can sound.


Split E Mechanism

This flute is fitted with the split E mechanism, which is a lever that automatically closes one of the G keys when High E is fingered. This lowers the pitch of high E, which tends to come out a little sharp, making it easier to play High E in tune. This feature is definitely worth having, although few students get up to high E for at least three years.

If you are serious enough about flute playing to be considering this top quality, entry level instrument, then this feature is a must.

It is difficult enough at the best of time to play the flute in tune, and any feature that makes this task easier is a big asset. As a comparison, the base model Yamaha flute, the YFL-221, doesn’t have the split E. If you want a Yamaha flute with a split E, you have to upgrade your flute to the YFL-211, but it will cost you $150 extra.

This Haynes flute has the the Split E mechanism fitted as standard.


The body of this flute is made from cupro-nickel – an alloy of copper and nickel, then plated with silver. The keys and lip-plate are also silver plated.

Closed Tone Holes

This flute features closed tone holes that enable the student flutist to easily reach the finger positions without needing to be concerned about accurate placement over tone holes.


C Footjoint

This standard fitting means that 99% of all sheet music for the flute will be playable on this instrument.

NO Packing Materials to Remove

Before manufacturers ship their flutes to suppliers, they usually insert packing wedges to support the keys in transit. These wedges need to be carefully removed with tweezers before playing. The wedges are not always easy to spot. If you don’t remove every one, you risk bending the keys. Most suppliers of budget flutes don’t bother to remove these wedges – they simply unpack your flute from a shipping container and send it to you. I remove all the wedges from every flute before I send it out.

NO Adjustments to Make

During transit from the factory, the last phase of seating of the pads occurs, as the pads become compressed into their proper position Tiny adjustments are often necessary when the flute reaches its destination. The adjustments are simple to perform, but if you don’t know where to put your screwdriver your flute won’t play at its best. Those suppliers who ship straight from the container and don’t even bother to remove the packing wedges care even less about fine-tuning your flute before you get it. I play test all Masterpiece instruments and adjust them for you so that they are ready to play when they reach you.

Why buy musical instruments from me?

I know a good flute when I see one. Since 1980, I have been a professional musician, teacher and author. I have taught hundreds of students i n thousands of lessons. I have written more than 60 books on how to play musical instruments that have collectively sold more than one million copies worldwide.. Masterpiece instruments are the same instruments that I recommend to my students. I sit beside them and listen to them play all day long.
