Alto flute demo
Compass c – C”” (g – G”’)
Headpiece and body silverplated
This alto flute was originally designed for ensemble purposes. To produce more decibels when playing low notes the diameter of the flute is a bit wider than average.
The flute performs as a solo instrument also although regular altos will be slightly more subtle in the top region. Bottom notes however are very confortable, warm and loud. Using this type of instrument does mean a difference in flute choirs.
The example shown here is an alto flute with parts of the tube non silverplated. This is to achieve a nice contrast. Of course the flute can be fully silverplated if wanted.
