Altus A1707 Flute
Altus A1707 Flute
An outstanding professional-level instrument with the added benefit of soldered tone holes and .997 Altus pure silver* headjoint/body tube.
With this combination of attributes, players are able to create an outstanding array of tonal colours and dynamics across all registers together 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 1707 models are known for their brilliance of tone due to the density of the .958 Britannia silver used in this model.
