Altus A1407 Handmade Flute


An excellent professional-level flute with the added benefit of .997 Altus silver* headjoint, body tube and mechanism throughout, allowing the player to create a wide range of tonal colours and dynamic contrasts, with ease of articulation.  The .997 Altus high-density silver brings with it a quality of tone more akin to that of a gold flute, whilst still retaining the brilliance and clarity of tone of a silver flute.

Altus’ beautifully crafted 1407 models are known for their rich, resonant tone due to the density of the .958 Britannia silver used in this model.
