Altus 907 Flute
With the Altus 900 series you get expertise, quality and hand finishing experience coupled with a professional design
The ALTUS 907 is a highly popular flute among advanced players and is a popular entry level professional level flute. Due to its increased silver content, the 958 Britannia silver head-joint lends this instrument richer harmonics and, thus, expands the musician’s range of tonal expression.
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).
The 907 Artist models from Altus have a .958 Brittania silver handmade headjoint which gives a richness of tone and flexibility above a standard .925 sterling silver option that would be found on many other brands. Although on paper there are some fully solid silver models at this price point they are commonly student model designs with silver components, whereas this model is designed for players with professional standard expectations.
