Product details

Suitable for

By using 958 Britannia silver, the Altus 1107 flute obtains a wide sound with a darker colouring than the preceding instruments. Because of the modulation capacity of the sound, the notes’ carrying capacity and its dynamic range, the ALTUS 1107 is particularly suitable for the gifted and ambitious flutist.

At the leading edge of contemporary flute making, Altus have developed and introduced density-sensitive materials to the flute market, including .958 Britannia. All Altus flutes come as standard with the accurate William Bennett (WIBB) scale, a responsive and durable mechanism, and a precisely hand-cut headjoint, customised for each flute. Altus flutes appeal to the player who has a classical approach to tone and wants a unique flute that is different from conventional offerings.

The Altus Company, founded by Shuichi Tanaka, produces handmade flutes in the town of Azumino in Japan. Altus is one of the most innovative companies when it comes to alloying and new ways of construction. The flute is looked upon as a piece of art, and Altus is relying on the European tradition of flute craftsmanship (Lot and Boehm).
