Altus Headjoint Sterling Silver Lip and Riser
Altus silver-plated hand-cut headjoint - for flute model 807. Silver-plated tube with sterling silver lip plate and riser. Handmade in Japan.
For the 807 model, Altus offers two different headjoint styles: The "Classic Cut" or the "Z-Cut."
Renowned for producing the trademark Altus sound, the Classic Cut headjoint provides vibrant warmth with excellent projection. Its pure tonal center allows the artist great flexibility with an infinite color palette.
With a more rectangular embouchure hole with minimal over and undercutting, the Z-Cut headjoint produces a quick response without sacrificing flexibility or control. The sound is open and free with a darker tonal color.
