Altus Flutes

ALTUS platinum flute

The instrument for the outré musician or the avant-gardist, with the outstanding projection power of platinum. Platinum flutes have an extraordinarily strong projection power due to the metal’s extreme density. The sound is very clear and well-balanced, neither too silvery nor too dark. With a head-joint custom-made for these flutes which responds sensitively and balances the platinum’s power well, every form of musical expression may be achieved on this flute. It can be custom-made to suit the musician’s personal wishes entirely.
