Azumi flutes are distinguished by the inclusion of the Altus Z-cut professional headjoint. Responsive and free blowing, the Altus Z-cut headjoint features a rectangular-shaped embouchure hole, which improves articulation and allows your flute to sing sweetly in all registers. Carefully crafted by Altus, this handmade headjoint is included with every Azumi flute. The Altus Z-cut headjoint’s clear, open tone makes it a natural choice for symphonic settings, while its remarkable responsiveness will appeal to jazz players and flutists performing in other contemporary styles.

Altus-Bennet Scale provides exceptional intonation

Another commonality between all Azumi flutes is the use of the Altus-Bennet scale. A collaboration between Altus flutemaker Shuichi Tanaka and renowned British flutist William Bennet, the Altus-Bennet scale is a modified version of the Cooper scale, which was adopted by most major flute manufacturers to replace the Boehm system. The Altus-Bennet scale expands on the Cooper system to create flutes that exhibit exceptional intonation, carefully tuned harmonics, and balanced registers. Not only will you benefit from improved intonation, but you’ll also be treated to an effortless playing experience along with a tone boasting incredible depth, color, and clarity.

Azumi by Altus: traditional artistry meets modern innovation

Made by Altus, Azumi flutes are designed by Tanaka to provide serious student musicians and aspiring artists with professional-class features at an affordable price. Azumi flutes share many attributes with Altus’s handcrafted flutes, including the Altus Z-cut professional headjoint, the Altus-Bennet scale, and elegant pointed key arms, making them a step-up flute of choice for music educators.
