Solid Gold Headjoint
This material is much used throughout the world and produces a very rich and silky quality to the sound. Legato phrasing seems to be easier to produce. A gold headjoint can be added to silver or gold flutes to great effect. The result tends to be slightly more resistive to play on than an equivalent silver headjoint, something that a lot of players enjoy. The gold tube is very popular and gives the rich, full and sonorous sound that typifies this material. If you like the sound of a gold flute you are not going to find it in any other material.
