New Sterling Silver open hole William S. Haynes flute copy made by DC PRO.
The body of the flute is a direct copy of the Haynes flute
This flute has a sold silver head joint.
which is a direct copy of the Powell head joint.
It is open hole with the low B foot joint.
It has an offset G key and pointed cup arms for more durability and better tone hole sealing.
The engraved lip plate gives more support in all registers because it helps the lower lip to lock in place while playing fast passages.

DC PRO IS MY OWN BRAND.

I learned flute making when I worked for William S. Haynes company in Boston in 1980.

My job was to solder the tone holes on the body of the flute.
It was an extremely important job, because if the tone holes were not exactly placed on the tube The flute would not be in tune with itself and therefor be worthless.
Their flutes start at $8,500.00 and go up.

There was such need in the market for an affordable priced high quality flute.
That is the reason I decided to make my own high quality professional flute.
Here is my Bio:

I PLAY SAX, CLARINET, FLUTE,
HARMONICA AND UKELLE
And also do some back up vocals

I started playing clarinet in 1951
I learned from Mr. Henri Bernard,
A symphony orchestra conductor, from Germany.
I started playing saxophone in 1952
I joined a classical symphony orchestra
in Boston 1953.
I started playing flute in 1970.
I started playing jazz saxophone with Big Band conductor
Mr. Gerald Cooper at Berkley College of Music in 1978.
I had my own band in 1980 called “Dominic’s Music.”
We played old standards and pop tunes:
Like Beatles, Bob Dylan, Neil Young etc.
We did weddings, private parties and night clubs
in and around the Boston area.
The last band I was with is called
“IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR”
We played all classic rock music.
Their best gig was at the Hatch Shell in Boston.
My last major concert was for a host of
pretty impressive guests,
Including former

President Bill Clinton while he was still in office.
Senator John Kerry

and
Senator Ted Kennedy
were also present.

I Played in the 22-piece John Payne saxophone
choir at the Park Plaza Castle in Boston.
Security was so tight,
The secret service did background checks on each musician
And we had to leave our instruments at the door
to be searched by white house staff
before we could enter the building.
As soon as we started playing
President Clinton pointed to us and yelled
“I love that band. That’s my band”
