Overview

Designed by Altus founder and flutemaker Shuichi Tanaka, Azumi flutes are a perfect fit for the serious student and aspiring flutist.

The Z-Cut Headjoint
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.

Pointed Key Arms
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.

Altus-Bennett Scale
Based on the work and recommendations of British flutist William Bennett, the Altus-Bennett scale offers excellent intonation, carefully tuned harmonics, and balanced registers.

Open Holes
An open hole flute has holes at the center of the A, G, F, E and D keys. Openholes are the standard among intermediate flutes, and are the preference of the majority of flutists.

B Footjoint
The flute’s footjoint can be built to low C or B. The B foot reaches down to a low B, one half-step lower than the C footjoint. It has one more key and the length of the tube is extended by about one inch.

Inline or Offset G Keys
The G keys of a flute can be made inline or offset. There is no difference in the tone produced with inline or offset G keys, it is simply a matter of comfort and preference.

Split E Mechanism
The split E mechanism is designed to make the high E more responsive. This mechanism physically splits the double G keys. When playing G, the keys behave as normal, closing both of the G keys.

C# Trill Key
The C# trill key is a lever activated by the first finger of the right hand to open a tone hole next to the
