When one thinks about the flute, most people probably have the concert flute or the C flute in mind, the most widely known type in the flute family and considered ideal for beginners. It is usually made of metal, has a range of three octaves (C4-C7), and creates a great sound for solos but blends well with other band instruments.

What most people don’t know is that there are several different types of flutes, each with its distinct sounds, such as the alto flute and bass flute.

The alto flute is significantly longer and thicker than the C flute and has a range of G3-G6, a fourth lower than the C flute. It is known for its distinct mellow and rich sound rarely used in flute ensembles but occasionally played in wind ensembles and orchestras.

The bass flute is a fairly large flute that can be as long as 60 inches, making it a little harder to play than its shorter counterparts. It comes with a range of C3-C6 and is pitched an octave lower than the C flute.
