Gold is a tricky metal to photograph, it is hard to get the colour accurate. My 18K gold flute has gold keys as well - it was made by hand in Japan by Muramatsu. I have never played a John Lehner flute, I'm not a fan of american flutes- I have tried Nagahara,Powell, Haynes and Burkart flutes and they just don't feel right. American flutes also tend to have a brassy sound to them that I don't really like either.
yes hard to get gold to look right..Lehner is Australian,funny you didn't like Nagahara..very popular here..I use Sankyo,and tried 10 heads before I found the right one...,it helps being a dealer of them
