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.
This device is usable for standard C-flute, piccolo, alto and bass flutes.
The Flute Boot is being manufactured by Altieri, and will be available by order here, as well as other resale locations. All proceeds will go toward non-profit flute organizations, such as the National Flute Association.
Production is beginning very soon. Please place your pre-order now below. Please select a fabric color option below (all photos are prototypes, and those patterns are not available).
