Haynes Q1 Classic Series Professional Flute
With Haynes Solid Silver “Classic” Headjoint
Haynes is one of the most storied flute makers in history. With a reputation for quality & performance, their flutes are some of the most sought after in the professional market. With many professional players and teachers using Haynes flutes as their own personal instrument, a need for an affordable professional flute for advancing students arose. To answer that need, Haynes designed the Q Series Classic flutes. These flutes bring the Haynes performance and quality into a price that is affordable. The Haynes Q1 flute is the most affordable in the line featuring a Solid Silver Haynes Classic headjoint and matching it to a silver plated professional body.
Your new Haynes Q1 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 an extended “2+1 Shop Warranty” at no additional charge.
2+1 Professional Shop Warranty
Your new Haynes Q1 will be fully covered under our ProShop warranty. In this warranty, we will provide 2 years on all adjustments & labor associated with the maintenance of your flute. This includes up to 2 annual C.O.A. (Clean Oil & Adjust) servicings in our shop. Materials (such as the pads) are covered for 1 year from purchase. This warranty does not cover damage or misuse (such as having a non-qualified technician working on the flute). The flute, of course, includes the Haynes manufacturer’s warranty as well.
Pisoni S-2 Pads
Flute Pads can have a phenomenal impact on the performance, feel & response of a flute. Professional flutes tend to see a major upgrade in pads over intermediate models. In the case of the Haynes Q1, the Pisoni S-2 pad was chosen (specifically, the S2-US model with Delrin stabilizers). This pad features a CNC machined base made from Delrin in order to provide a firm feel to your new Haynes Q1 flute. This Delrin base is then covered with a very thin layer of microfibre in lieu of felt that is then covered in a double bladder skin layer. This setup provides a firm feel and for more power and response from the flute as the pad does not absorb the acoustics of the flute like a traditional felt and instead reflects more sound and power out.
The Pisoni S-2 pads were designed for high-end professional flutes and are a marvelous pairing to the Haynes Q1 flutes. However, these professional pads require a significantly more skilled and trained technician in order to adjust and regulate your new flute. Kessler & Sons Music has 3 fully trained technicians who have been trained how to properly handle and work on professional flutes and the higher end pads associated with them (such as the Pisoni S-2 & Straubinger pads).
