Altus Bass Flutes
For over 25 years, Altus Co., Ltd has crafted a complete line of flutes that embody the ideal marriage of vintage inspiration and modern technology. The meticulous design of the Altus Flute by Shuichi Tanaka, with its uncompromised scale has received great attention.
Altus set a new trend in the flute industry with its introduction of new materials to expand the tone color of the instrument with new densities of metal - like .958 Britannia silver, .997 Powdered silver, and the exquisite Altus Silver. Based on the work and recommendations of British flutist William Bennett, the Altus/Bennett scale offers excellent intonation, carefully tuned harmonics, and balanced registers.
