What Are the Benefits of Playing a Gold Flute?

- Question submitted by Adam K. via Twitter
- Question answered by Jeff Tellock, Heid Music Senior Flute Repair Technician

"Gold has more overtones, thus creating a warmer sound.  The other benefit being the wall thickness can be very thin on a gold flute, because gold is so dense.  With gold being such a heavy metal, you would think you’d have a heavy flute – but the opposite is true.  The density of gold allows you to keep the walls thin, so the flute responds very quickly, and you get all the tonal benefits of a dark, warm, rich gold instrument. "
