Manufacturer's Description

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.

Our Description

Handmade in sintered silver which is incredibly (99.7%) pure, the PS 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.

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.
