Yes, a customer did this once.
He believed that re-silver plating the inside of a student flute head would turn it into a professional head.
He believed it almost worked.
So then he got it gold plated, still based on some belief.
Still not the tone he wanted, so he got silver and gold stripes plated inside the head.
Hmm. I was actually glad to see the end of him and his very time-consuming presentation of his beliefs.

So the question is, before you waste a lot of money, why?

I used to cut Julius Baker's lip plates and gold-plate his headjoints. The plating didn't change a thing. Phil Barone
