The Altair model features pointed arm construction, enhancing the overall look of this Sterling Silver flute. As in the Lyra model, the Altair has hard-soldered toneholes giving the sound quality of a soldered model with the structural integrity of a drawn tonehole—a benefit generally found only on a gold instrument.
This flute follows in the tradition of the finest American makers, which in turn followed from the best of the French makers. The pointed arms are a hallmark of these symphony quality instruments.
The final stage in creating this heirloom quality flute is the voicing of all notes and registers.
