Altus A13 Flute


The recently refined Altus A13 surpasses the Altus 1307. With its newly designed headjoint, it allows advanced players to explore a rich array of tonal colours and overtones.

The Altus A11 proudly features the newly evolved “Altus scale,” incorporating meticulously calculated and precisely tuned harmonics. This flute, abundant with colourful overtones, empowers developing players to broaden their tone and elevate their musical expression.

A highly popular choice for players who prefer a lighter flute with the same quality of scale, headjoint, and mechanism as a soldered tone hole model.

*The term “.958” denotes Britannia silver, an alloy comprising 95.8% silver and 4.2% copper, zinc, or other metals. This alloy boasts a higher silver content compared to Sterling silver (.925). Many musicians appreciate Britannia Silver for its ability to produce a darker sound with improved projection.
