Due to the high density of this precious metal, ALTUS gold flutes have a particularly expansive sound and the dark, warm tone colour typical of gold. A transverse flute made out of massive gold offers the player a darker and warmer tone and, due to the even higher density of this precious metal, an enormous carrying capacity even in large concert halls. The still high proportion of silver in the alloy of a 14 carat gold flute results in a warm and yet shimmering and brilliant sound. 18 carat gold flutes offer typical softness and richness in sound as well as superb quality when slurring.
