Amadeus 680 Series Flute by Haynes
Save Big with Store Used Demos!
The passion and craftsmanship that has been associated with Wm. S. Haynes flutes since 1888 emanates through every Amadeus flute. The master flutemakers design and work on each flute before it leaves the Boston workshop. With the Amadeus 680 Flute, Haynes brings their professional craft into the price range of students by combining a hand-crafted Solid Silver “Classic” Headjoint with an exceptional, affordable body.
Save Big with a Store Used Demo!
We have a small number of Amadeus 680 flutes that have been used for in store demonstration by customers. As a result, these flutes may have very minor cosmetic blemishes. Please note, they will NOT have heavy signs of use like deep scratches or dents. What we call a “demo” in our shop would pass as “new” in most shops around the country. So the only difference that most customers would find is the price! Still includes all warranties and setup in our shop.
Haynes “Classic” Solid Silver Headjoint
All of our Store Demo Amadeus 680 flutes are equipped with the Haynes “Classic” cut headjoint. This is the same headjoint paired with the higher end Haynes Q Series flutes. We recommend the Haynes “Classic” headjoint for the Amadeus 680 flute as it is the hands down more professional cut headjoint. In our opinion, the Classic headjoint paired with the Amadeus 680 flute provides players with the logical step in progressing as a player.
Your new Amadeus 680 flute, when purchased through Kessler & Sons Music, is fully gone through in our professional flute shop to ensure that it is at its peak performance when you receive it. Furthermore, we provide you with a 1 year “ProShop Warranty” covering pads and adjustments at no additional charge.
Pisoni Lucien Deluxe Pads
Flute Pads can have a phenomenal impact on the performance, feel & response of a flute. Better flutes tend to see a major upgrade in pads over student models. In the case of the Amadeus 680, the Pisoni Lucien Deluxe pad was chosen. This pad features a specially treated pressed felt in order to provide a firm feel to your new Amadeus 680 flute while maintaining the life expectancy of a traditional felt pad.
Even though the Lucien Deluxe is a “felt pad”, it still requires a more skilled technician in order to adjust and regulate your new flute. Kessler & Sons Music has fully trained technicians who have been trained how to properly handle and work on professional flutes and the higher end pads associated with them. The techniques that we use on the highest end professional flute pads are also applied when we work on the Lucien Deluxe pads in your new Amadeus 680 flute. As a result, you will find an Amadeus 680 setup in our shop to be more responsive, expressive and more stable than an Amadeus 680 that has not been put through this level of professional setup. This is just another advantage of purchasing through Kessler & Sons Music!
