The Altus professional soldered tone hole models offer a bel canto style of sound characteristic that is purely homogenous throughout the entire range of sound. This is accomplished through a precise focus on the ideal aspects of a flute crafted by an artist for artists. The Altus PS (1707) is constructed with Altus's unique 99.7% 'High Purity' material, giving this flute remarkable projection capability while retaining a smooth and even tone colour. For a less resistant 99.7% 'High Purity' flute, try the Altus PSD with drawn tone holes.
The PS, handmade in 99.7% 'High Purity', has wonderful clarity of sound, with superb projection, flexibility and control over every nuance and subtlety that a player needs. A remarkable flute.
Players who prefer a slightly heavier and resistant flute might like to try it with platinum-plated tube and gold-plated keywork. This darkens and mellows the sound further.
This flute is in excellent playing order and was serviced in the shop prior to sale. It has some very minor surface scratches on the head and body but the overall aesthetic is very good and the instrument has been well cared for.
