The Alto Flute
During the last ten years, the Kingma Alto flute has become a very well-known instrument. Many
have found their way to satisfied customers. The unique quality of this alto flute stimulates
players to use it as their main instrument.
Alto flutes have a uniquely responsive lower register and a very warm and projecting sound
over all octaves.
The mechanism is designed to fit many different hand sizes. Our Alto Flutes are built according to the Cooper scale and are available in different models with different options and materials. Pitch is at A-442 (or different on request). It can be ordered with a solid silver or silver plated body and is available in two different bore sizes. Each model Alto flute has soldered tone holes. All head joints are made of solid silver.
Each bore size and material has its own quality, tone colour and characteristics. The material and the bore size are usually a very individual choice.
Three different head joints are available on approval, but we would request that you arrange the return shipping if necessary.
Every instrument is delivered with a custom made case, nylon case cover, and cleaning rod.
