Altus Professional flutes models are distinguished by a variety of tube materials and manufacturing techniques. Standard features include the Altus/Bennett scale, exclusive SP-1 springs, drawn or soldered tone holes, soldered, French-pointed keys, hand-carved lip plates, gizmo key, and D# roller. Due to its denser material, 958 Britannia silver gives the Altus 1307 flute an increased strength of resonance. The instrument’s silvery sound obtains a slightly darker element, which thus provides the musician with a wider range of tonal modulation. 

Headjoint Features:
Classic Cut headjoint - with it's oval shaped embouchure hole, produces a sweet sound with flexibility and penetrating projection. Renowned for producing the trademark Altus sound, the Classic cut is standard on all models.

Z-CUT - this new cut, with a more rectangular shape and minimal over and undercutting, produces a quick response without sacrificing agility. It offers full projection over the entire range of the flute and a darker more dramatic tone color.

V CUT - The newest cut from Altus is the new handcut "V" cut, which has a relatively oval embouchure hole. The lip plate has a dramatic angle at the blowing edge. It's more powerful than the Classic or Z cut, and has a gorgeous colorful sound. 

C Foot, different tubing thicknesses, various riser and lip plate metal combinations and Gold & Platinum plating are available as SPECIAL ORDER ONLY options. Please contact Flute World for pricing and availability.
