Our Description

The newly refined Altus A9 supercedes the Altus 907; one of the most popular upgrades for the advanced flute player. Equipped with a redesigned headjoint which allows players of all levels to explore a wide tonal palette. With a seamed nickel silver body tube, this flute stands out in this price range for being reminiscent of instruments from the great flute makers of the late 19th century France. The Altus A9 features the newly evolved  "Altus scale", carefully calculated and precisely tuned harmonics. This flute is full of colourful overtones, and enables the developing player to explore and expand their tone and musical expression.

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.
