Altus Silver-Plated B Footjoint for Flute
Perfect Performance Plan
Included with every new instrument:

Most flute players at one time or another come across one or more pieces of music which requires a low B. Even many players on solid silver flutes use a silver-plated B footjoint, when required, as an economical solution to this problem, since the effect on tone is only slight.
Please note that this footjoint is supplied unfitted. There may be a small additional charge for fitting (even to an Altus silver-plated flute) - please contact our workshop for further details. This footjoint is compatible with most popular makes of flute.
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.
