Azumi flutes are designed by Mr. Shuichi Tanaka, famed, 25-year master flutemaker of the Altus flute. All Azumi flutes incorporate the Altus/Bennett scale, the handmade professional Z-Cut headjoint, and the elegance of pointed key arms.
The Altus /Bennett scale with its precise intonation (making it easier to play in tune) and enhanced resonance adds depth, color and flexibility to the sound. The Altus Z-Cut headjoint responds cleanly, quickly and easily (with fantastic articulation), its sound is full and open and it produces a full and rich tone in all three registers. This headjoint is well suited for a band or orchestral setting and is an excellent choice for jazz players as well. The pointed key arms, usually reserved for professional models adds a refined look, improved key strength and promotes even pad wear.
Azumi flutes are a perfect fit for the serious student and aspiring flutist.
