Powell

Powell

From the earliest Powell flutes made in 1927 in Boston Massachusetts, to the instruments finished today in our Maynard Massachusetts workshop, every Powell flute has a unique character and all bear a family resemblance. The first 10 flutes made by Mr. Powell in 1927 were owned by some of the most famous American flutists of the time, including William Kincaid, Arthur Lora and John Wummer and by 1930 Powell flutes were part of major orchestras in Baltimore, Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, New York and Philadelphia. Over 80 years, Powell has successfully balanced the tension between innovation and tradition resulting in innovations that have been widely accepted by the flute community, including:

  • The gizmo key (with partner Arthur Lora in 1928)
  • Introduction of the Cooper scale to the USA (1976)
  • Aurumite® (1986)
  • 19.5k rose gold (2003)
  • Zinki technology for drawing tone holes (2007)
  • The Powell mechanism (1987 and 2009)

Powell flute makers of today continue the New England tradition of craftsmanship and a devotion to making the highest quality instruments.
