Haynes Flutes currently offers two headjoint styles: The "Piedmont Cut" and the "Newbury Cut."
The Piedmont Cut is the quintessential Haynes headjoint - warm, rich and flexible - and is the default headjoint for all Haynes flutes.
The Newbury Cut, features a thicker riser, adding more resistance and color to the sound without sacrificing articulation.
