The William S. Haynes story is one of passion for excellence; it is the genesis of all flutemaking in America. Mr. Haynes fashioned his first flute in 1888, thus establishing the legacy of the WM. S. Haynes Co, and he built a workforce of craftspeople who, to this day, share his ideals of craftsmanship and ardor for the art.
Throughout the years, the standards of the Wm. S. Haynes Co. have been passed from master flutemaker to apprentice. Today, the company is located in a custom-designed modern facility in Acton, Massachusetts, combining original tools and techniques with modern technological resources.
