Wm. S. Haynes Company

Wm. S. Haynes Company is dedicated to the highest level of craftsmanship and has developed crafting techniques and methods that have been adopted as the paradigm in the flutemaking industry. Haynes flutes are known the world over for “that sound.”

Cobus is proud to be a Haynes Ambassador Clinician and Artist. He performs on a Fusion Outside model flute which is a 14K rose gold exterior fused to a 95% silver/5% platinum alloy interior. His Nagog cut headjoint is a 19.5K tube with 18K riser. The Nagog Cut is named after the Nagog Creek on which the new Haynes factory is situated, features a thicker riser, adding more resistance and color to the sound without sacrificing articulation.
