Designed by Altus founder and flutemaker Shuicki Tanaka, Azumi flutes are a ferfect fit for the serious student and aspiring flutist. The most distinct 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. All Azumi flutes feature pointed key arms for an elegant and refined look, improved key strength, and even pad wear. The Altus/Bennett scale makes these flutes effortless to play in tune. The AZ2SRBO features a sterling silver Altus Z-cut headjoint, silver-plated body/keys, open holes, B foot, an offset G key.
