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.
