The P Cut was named in honor of Piedmont Street, in the center of Boston, where Haynes workshop was located from 1953 to 2010. Like its namesake, the P style provides a stable road for the flutist to travel and discover new aspects of sound. The P Cut is warm, rich, free-blowing & flexible. The default headjoint for Haynes flutes.
The N Cut is named after the Nagog wetlands that surround the current Haynes workshop in Acton, Massachusetts. In nature there is beauty and complexity, which is reflected in the N style. The N encourages flutists to move off the beaten path and explore. The N Cut features a thicker riser for the player who uses faster air & prefers more resistance adding color to the sound without sacrificing articulation.
