Azumi Flutes

Designed by Altus founder and flutemaker Shuichi Tanaka, Azumi flutes are a perfect fit for the serious student and aspiring flutist. The most distinctive feature of all Azumi flutes is the Altus Z-cut professional headjoint which responds quickly and easily and produces a full and rich tone in all three registers. Usually reserved for professional models, all Azumi Flutes feature pointed key arms for an elegant and refined look, improved key strength, and even pad wear. Based on the work and recommendations of British flutist William Bennett, the Altus-Bennett scale offers excellent intonation, carefully tuned harmonics, and balanced registers.

All Azumi flutes feature the Altus-Bennett Scale, a Gizmo Key and an Altus Z-Cut™ Professional headjoint with a .925 Sterling Silver Lip Plate and Riser. Open holes and B footjoint are standard.
