Our Description

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.
