Made from a flat piece of metal that is rolled, hand planished, and then seamed, the Altus seamed tube is truly the only handmade flute tube available in modern production. There is no other flute as expressive. The player feels the vibrance of the instrument as the audience becomes captivated by its tonal beauty.

Altus seamed tubes are thin, lightweight, and handmade in a choice of two types of silver. Soldered tone holes and D# rollers are standard. Sterling Silver mechanisms are mounted on Pure 997 Silver hinge tubes. A variety of keywork and headjoint options are available.


The 1607 Altus is made with our standard Britannia 958 Silver.


The 1807 Altus Limited (AL) is made with our special alloy of Altus 946 Silver™.
