Product details

Suitable for

The Altus 823 bass flute is an entirely hand-carved instrument meeting the highest demands on response, intonation and quality of sound. It has an excellent reputation due to its balance and richness of sound.

Since its creation, the Altus bass flute has established a solid reputation for reliable performance amongst artists and students alike. The consistent performance qualities of a balanced tone throughout the range has contributed to building confidence with flautists who choose to play and recommend these larger instruments. Like the Altus alto, the hand crafted Altus bass flute has received particular praise for its truly superb scale, even tone colour and unique timbre.

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).
