Altus Silver Series models are distinguished by a variety of tube materials and manufacturing techniques. Standard features include the Altus/Bennett scale, exclusive SP-1 springs, French-pointed keys, hand-carved lip plates, gizmo key, and D# roller.
The 1207 is crafted from sterling silver which is comprised of 92.5% silver. Sterling has long been the industry standard for high-end flute making. The classic pairing of flutist and the original precious metal has long been held as the soul of fluting. Connect with the flute’s great history and extend your personality into the future.
Each Altus flute includes a case, cover, cleaning rod, and cleaning cloth.
Classic Cut – Oval shaped embouchure hole – produces a sweet sound with flexibility and penetrating projection. Renowned for producing the trademark Altus sound.
Z Cut – More rectangular shaped embouchure hole and minimal over and undercutting, produces a quick response without sacrificing agility. Offers full projection over the entire range of the flute and a darker more dramatic tone color.
V Cut – The newest cut from Altus. The lip plate has a dramatic angle at the blowing edge. Most players find this option more powerful than the Classic or Z cut, with a gorgeous colorful sound.
