Altus exclusive Pure Silver (PS) tube is made through sinter technology to create a hard silver tube producing amazing projection and intensity. The tone is even throughout the registers with a noticeable depth of tone color. Sintered Tubing is a process unique to Altus where powdered silver metal is compacted at a higher temperature to fuse particles together directly into a rigid tube. The exclusive powdered Pure Silver (PS) tube is made possible only through highly innovative sinter technology. Normally, pure silver is too soft for successful flute tube production because it requires trace amounts of harder metals in the alloy to give it sufficient strength. The traditional method of creating a melted metal alloy results in pure silver tubes unsuitable for flute making. Sinter technology creates hard tubes of pure silver by compacting the silver under great pressure without melting it into a soft alloy. This unique process produces a dense and brilliant hard silver tube with supreme projecting qualities.
