Get the Pinnacle of Refinement with the Azumi AZ3SRBO-K Flute - Open Hole, Offset G, B Foot, 24K Gold Plated Crown and Lip Plate The Z-Cut Headjoint

The most distinctive 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.

The Z Cut headjoint is handmade by Altus and is included on every Azumi flute. The attention to detail in the handmade process creates a more responsive and flexible tone. The headjoint features a fairly rectangular shaped embouchure hole which makes it responsive and clean with fantastic articulation.

The response makes it a fantastic choice for jazz players as well, who sometimes have to jump from sax to flute and get the high C to pop as though it is easy.

Pointed Key Arms

Usually reserved for professional models, all Azumi Flutes feature pointed key arms for an elegant and refined look, improved key strength, and even pad wear.

The pointed arms connect the key hinge tube to the key cup at the back and across the top of the key, ending in a point in the center of the cup.

Open Holes

An open hole flute has holes at the center of the A, G, F, E and D keys. Openholes are the standard among intermediate flutes, and are the preference of the majority of flutists.

Playing openholes requires and therefore develops fingering accuracy that is not essential on plateau keys. Open holes can be used for effects such as bending and shading

Open holes can be closed with specially made plugs that can be inserted or removed by the player.

B Footjoint

B foot reaches down to a low B, one half-step lower than the C footjoint. It has one more key and the length of the tube is extended by about one inch.

The B footjoint also adds weight to the overall instrument which increases resistance and results in producing an overall darker tone versus the brighter tone of a C footjoint.

Offset G-Keys

Offset G keys are offset slightly from the rest of the keys and are mounted on separate posts. A growing number of flutists prefer the comfort and hand position on the offset G flute.
