For more than 30 years, Altus has handcrafted flutes that embody the ideals of vintage inspiration and modern technology. Created by Master Flute Maker Shuichi Tanaka, each Altus flute reflects his passion to combine the finest playing flutes with the best materials and artistry. The meticulous design of the Altus flute and its acclaimed Altus/Bennett scales offers excellent intonation, carefully tuned harmonics, and balanced registers. The masterfully hand-sculpted headjoints and precision tubings produce the remarkable sound of the Altus flute.
Azumi flutes are also designed by Mr. Tanaka and are a perfect fit for the serious student and aspiring artist. All Azumi flutes feature the Altus-Bennett scale and an Altus Z-Cut professional headjoint with a .925 sterling silver lip plate and riser. Open holes and B footjoint are standard.
All Altus and Azumi flutes come with a hard case, case cover, cleaning rod, and polishing cloth.
