How much does your flute weigh?


Below is a database consisting of the weight (in ounces) of 9 different headjoints and 34 different professional flute models from 14 different flute brands, representing a wide range of gold, silver, platinum and wooden flutes.  To find out the weight of a specific brand, please type the brand name in the search bar and scroll down by the search bar.  This will present you with a listing of the weighed flutes of this brand.  Once you find the flute you wish to learn more about, scroll to the far right column and click "view" for all details.  This search feature can also demonstrate the difference in weight between gold flutes of different brands, silver flutes, etc. by typing in the material you wish to compare in the search bar (i.e. "Gold", "Silver", etc.)

If you would like to try any of the flutes listed, click on the "view" column of the listing at the far right to determine which store the flute came from.  Once you have determined this information, contact either the Flute Center of New York or Flute Specialists, Inc.
