.946 Seamed Altus Silver: This alloy consists of 94.6% silver and 18 precious metals, including small amounts of platinum and gold.  Exclusive to Altus, it possesses many of the rich tonal attributes of the old French master flute-makers, most notably Louis Lot’s famous flutes.

Headjoint Styles:
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.
