The name "ALTUS" refers to innovation regarding alloys and construction features to support the flute in its role as work of art for musical expression.

It also translates the close ties with the European flute tradition (Lot and Böhm).

The precise intonation, the perfectly fitting key work and the richly variable sound turn ALTUS handmade flutes into exceptional instruments, as countless ALTUS players never tire to confirm.
