Altus 1807AL, handmade with special .946 Altus Silver Seamed Tube, .925 Sterling Silver Mechanism, SP-1 Springs, Soldered Tone Holes, French pointed keys, Straubinger pads, split-E, offset G, C foot. The tube of the Altus AL is made the same way the legendary Louis Lot flutes were constructed, producing a very open and deep vibrant sound. This flute has easy low and high octaves, and a fast responsive mechanism. The “Bennett scale” gives this flute precise intonation. The C foot was a recommendation by William Bennett to further the ease of the low register and intonation. Purchased in 2007, played at the Royal Academy of Music and professionally abroad for many years. I am the sole owner. Please contact me for more photos and any questions.
