Jupiter 1100 Alto Flute
Solid Silver Headjoint & Split E Mechanism
Formerly the 600 Series (617E | 619E | 621E)
The Jupiter 1100 Alto Flute is one of the most amazing values on the whole flute market (not just the Alto Flute market)! This instrument features performance, quality build amazing tone and response, excellent ergonomics and offers all of it at a fraction of the cost of comparable instruments from other makers. Plainly put, the Jupiter Alto Flute is the absolute best value Alto Flute on the market!
1100 Series – Silver Headjoint
The Jupiter 1100 Alto Flute features the same body & key design as the lower priced 1000 Series, but upgrades to a Solid Silver headjoint (or headjoints depending on your configuration) as well as add’s a Split E mechanism.
The Jupiter 1100 Alto Flute has among its features a key-work design that is outstanding. The left hand for example at glance looks a bit different due to the first finger no using a traditional finger “button” but instead an elongated paddle design. While this looks a bit odd at first glance, when you put it in your hands, you will see the brilliance! This key is designed so that regardless of the player’s hand-size, the Jupiter 1100 Alto Flute is comfortable and easy to hold. Whether a young student or an advanced adult player, the ergonomic grip of the Jupiter Alto Flute ensures comfort for the player that lets them focus on playing rather than finger position!

1000 Series Model

The 1000 Series models are the same overall design and quality as the Jupiter 1100 Alto Flute but removes the split E mechanismn and uses a traditional nickel-silver headjoint to help make the 1000 Series more affordable. The 1000 Series headjoints are cut to the same design and calibur thus giving players an amazing & affordable instrument.
Straight vs. Curved Headjoints
The Jupiter 1100 Alto Flute can be purchased with either a Straight Headjoint or with both a Straight & Curved Headjoint. In the end, there is not a definitive “better” option in this regards, but rather a personal preference. Both have their pros and cons.
- More open in sound
- Less resistant
- Requires a full reach from the player
- More resistant
- Can be helpful for smaller players as it brings the body of the flute closer to the player
- Players will “hear more” of the flute since the toneholes will be closer to the player – this can make the player perceive the flute to be brighter in tone
Any Jupiter 1100 Alto Flute bought through our shop is not released for shipping unless it has been completely setup in our shop first. This is because the setup on the instrument is of the utmost importance! Sometimes, a flute (regardless of who the manufacturer or the price point is) comes in needing 20 minutes of adjustments and then the very next one can require 2 hours! So if you were to get 5 of the same model right out of the box, they will all play different which leads people to believe that they are “good” or “bad” instruments… but the reality is that the one that was the best out of the 5 was likely the one that needed the least amount of work and on the flip side, the “bad” flute was the one that needed 2 hours worth of adjustments!
Once the same 5 instruments are properly regulated and adjusted to perfection, they become near identical & even the pickiest of players would be challenged to pick a true “favorite” one. However, since most stores do not or even can not perform this setup, the player never knows this and is simply relying on the luck of the draw. This is why we perform our setup in our ProShop before delivering your new flute to you. You trust us with your purchase and we want to make sure that you are rewarded by giving you your ideal flute setup flawlessly!
