Inline mechanics and open holes
The AZUMI AZ-S3RI with inline-mechanics comes with an ALTUS S-Cut Britannia silver (958) headjoint, lip-plate and riser are made of Sterling silver (925). The french pointed key-arms are giving an increased stability to the mechanism. Open holes allow numerous additional handles and effects like glissando, multiphonics and microtones. The body of the flute is made of silver-plated nickel silver and it is pitched in 442 Hz. On Inline flutes the G-valves form a line with the other holes.
The tonal character is supported by the use of 958 Britannia silver for the body and the headjoint
