Overview

The heart of the Altus flute.

The Altus Classic style headjoint is designed for the flutist that prefers some resistance in order to gain a fuller sound with a broad color palate. It has a pure tonal center which allows for great flexibility in tone and dynamics.

The founder and creator of the Altus flutes, Shuichi Tanaka, is one of the most extraordinary flutemakers to emerge from the Japanese flute-making tradition. A gifted flutist, Tanaka developed a genuine interest in the qualities and technical aspects of the instruments during his studies.

The construction of the headjoint was Tanaka's first fascination. He explored all the factors influencing the sound of the instrument, since every cut, file stroke and material combination provides a change in the sound. Each headjoint is meticulously hand crafted, driven by the idea that the headjoint is a crucial element in allowing the musician to more completely express their personality.
