The Flute Boot (utility and design patents pending) is a device carefully designed to help mitigate the air flow, particle and aerosol emissions coming from the end of the flute. Following scientific study, it has been recommended by the College Band Directors National Association (they refer to it as the 'flute sock') as a device to assist in mitigating these emissions. This device will not affect tone production or pitch of the flute. The flute boot is meant to be paired with a device that will help mitigate aerosols from the headjoint, such as the Flute Air Shield, the Win-D-Fender or the Flute Mask.
This device is usable for standard C-flute, piccolo, alto and bass flutes.
The Flute Boot is being manufactured by Altieri, and is available by order here. All proceeds will go toward non-profit flute organizations, such as the National Flute Association.
