Our Description

Altus professional models offer discerning flautists a choice of harmonically tuned and elegant sounding instruments capable of consistently executing technical passages with ease. Altus have developed and introduced density-sensitive materials to the flute market, including 95.8% Britannia which is used to make the headjoint and body tube of the 1507. 95.8% Britannia gives a darker, more mellow sound and enhances the projection of the flute. 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.

Manufacturer's Description

"The Altus 1507 is elegantly crafted to meet the performance requirements of the accomplished flautist. The first in our line of soldered tone hole models, it enhances the drawn tone hole 1307 design with increased overtones due to the additional feature of soldered tone holes. Less resistant than the 1607, this professional Britannia model offers both bright and dark characteristics with an ease of dynamic control and projection for any performance setting."

General Condition

This instrument has come to us in excellent playing condition, needing no work to put it in shape. It has some considerable scratching in places, but this is cosmetic only and does not affect the playability. This is a lovely instrument and would make a great choice for anyone seriously looking for a high-end instrument with high specs at a great price.

This item is sold “as seen”. It has not been checked in our workshop prior to sale, and this is reflected in the selling price.
