Altus PSD Flute
The Altus PSD Flute
The PSD model is part of Altus’s ‘Professional Series’ and is enriched by a .997 Altus pure silver* headjoint and body tube. This enhancement empowers the player to create an array of tonal colours, a wide range of dynamics, and ease of articulation.
The .997 Altus high-density silver, in particular, imparts a tone quality more reminiscent of a gold flute, all the while preserving the brilliance and clarity characteristic of a silver flute. Notably, Altus’ exquisitely crafted PSD models have garnered recognition for their tonal brilliance, owed to the density of the .958 Britannia silver employed in crafting this model.
