Description

Description

Pure 997 Silver – Altus exclusive powdered Pure Silver (PS) tube is made possible only through highly innovative sinter technology. Normally, pure silver is too soft for successful flute tube production because it requires trace amounts of harder metals in the alloy to give it sufficient strength. The traditional method of creating a melted metal alloy results in pure silver tubes unsuitable for flute making. Sinter technology creates hard tubes of pure silver by compacting the silver under great pressure without melting it into a soft alloy. This unique process produces a dense and brilliant hard silver tube with supreme projecting qualities.

The 1707PS is capable of a powerful tapestry of sound. Its unique sintered tube provides the strength and power to produce amazing projection and intensity. Features include .997 Pure Silver Sintered Tube Flute, .925 Sterling Silver Mechanism, .997 Pure Silver Hinge Tubes, Soldered Tone Holes, SP-1 Springs, D# Roller. Each Altus flute includes a case, cover, cleaning rod, and cleaning cloth.

Headjoint Options:
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.
