Altus flutes are held in the very highest esteem by professional players and technicians the world over. Now the Altus sound is available at an affordable price, thanks to the Azumi flute.
The key to the success of the Azumi is the Altus headjoint. This is the Z-cut style, handcut in Japan, which has a wider, rectangular shape to provide quick response with a large tone, across the range of the flute
Ever striving onwards for continued perfection, Altus have released their new Azumi Z series. Whilst maintaining the constantly high manufacturing standards found with the 3000 series, Altus have succeeded in improving on what was already considered one of the best flutes for value on the market.
In excellent condition throughout. Adjusted, checked and cleaned in our workshop prior to sale.
