Seeking a new challenge, Mr. Levit left Powell in 1999 to work for Brannen Brothers Flutemakers, and for the next 11 years he honed his skills with several successful projects. In 2010 he decided to leave Brannen to pursue his dream of designing and handcrafting his own flute — two years later, he established the Levit Flute Company. Mr. Levit is set apart by both his diverse experience and stellar reputation. His craftmanship is informed both by a mechanical engineering background, and his ability to custom design the precision tools and devices required to fabricate precious metal flutes of exceptional quality.
