Manufacturer's Description

The 1009E Flute D'Amour offers infinite opportunities for special performance situations that require transposition. During the 18th century, the Flute D'Amour was commonly played and since 1960 has enjoyed a renaissance. The finely crafted 1009E offers professional and solo attributes not often found on harmony flutes. Projection and air resistance is similar to a regular C flute but with a more contralto type of dark sound. Easier to play than an Alto flute, the Altus Flute d'Amour is designed with the seamed craftsmanship unique to Altus.

About Altus

Altus flutes are held in the very highest esteem by professional players and technicians the world over. Founded by master flute maker Shuichi Tanaka, each Altus flute reflects his passion to produce the finest playing flutes available.

Altus models offer discerning flautists a choice of harmonically tuned and elegant sounding instruments capable of consistently executing technical passages with ease. The many possible combinations of options enable the player to exact a wide range of tone colours.

At the leading edge of contemporary flute making, Altus have developed and introduced density-sensitive materials to the flute market, including .958 Britannia. All Altus flutes come as standard with the accurate William Bennett (WIBB) scale, a responsive and durable mechanism, and a precisely hand-cut headjoint, customised for each flute. Altus flutes appeal to the player who has a classical approach to tone and wants a unique flute that is different from conventional offerings.
