Powell's history is very much tied to their namesake, Verne Q. Powell. A jeweler by trade, Powell fashioned himself a flute in 1910 from whatever silver he could get his hands on, including silver dollars, watch casings, and spoons. This incredible feat of metal working landed him a job at a flute company in Boston. He worked there until 1926, leaving to create his own company. His goal was to be able to produce the world’s finest French flutes, and creating his own company gave him the freedom to devote himself to detail and artistry.

His instruments were immediately recognized as the very best a flutist could play, and endorsements flowed in from flutists around the globe. In 1928 he completed his first all 14K Gold flute; soon, piccolos and alto flutes were added. By 1930 the brand had representation in the Boston, Detroit, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Baltimore, and New York Orchestras. There were flutes which had a life of their own: William Kincaid's #365, known as the 'World’s Fair' Platinum flute; #900, the only flute ever made entirely of 14K White Gold; and #1142, the “Signature” Flute.

Over the decades innovation has became a hallmark of the Powell company, as they were the first to commercially use the Cooper Scale, the first company to mix silver and gold with the Aurumite flute, and the first to make 19.5K Rose Gold flutes.

The 2100 and 3100 series flutes were developed in the early 90’s, ultimately leading to the debut of today’s Conservatory flutes. The first Conservatory flute was unveiled in 2002 to celebrate the company’s 75th anniversary, alongside another new instrument, the Powell Sonaré flute. A year later the Signature flute was launched. 2005 and 2006 saw brand new headjoint styles: the Soloist and the Venti. In 2007 Powell patented a new method for extruding tone holes which is now widely used today. NASA Astronaut Cady Coleman brought her Powell flute on the International Space Station in 2011, making it the only handmade flute to be played in space.

  • Powell - Aurumite 9K Conservatory Flute

    General

    Each Powell flute has a unique character yet all bear a family resemblance. Powell instruments are made with care to exacting tolerances. Ultimately a Powell flute or piccolo is crafted to a musical performance standard. From the first flute made in 1906 by Verne Q. Powell to today's Powell flute, the humanity of each artisan at Powell is reflected in the character of the instrument. The feel of a key or the aesthetic of a pointed arm are the subtle and telltale signs of the individuality of the flutemaker. In the final analysis it is the musician who determines the true voice of the flute. The unique quality and excellence of a Powell instrument resides in its ability to be shaped by the flutist. Comon features of the Powell Conservatory Aurumite flute include:

    • 10k White Gold Springs
    • 9k Aurumite headjoint and body (9k Rose Gold exterior tubing with Sterling silver interior tubing)
    • Sterling silver pinless mechanism
    • choice of in-line or off-set G
    • drawn tone holes
    • G disc
    • choice of headjoint cut: Philharmonic, Venti, Soloist, or Lumina
    • choice of A=442 or A=444
    • B foot
    • choice of .016 or .018 tubing

      *All Powell flute models can be ordered in C foot. Please contact us for pricing and availability.


    Headjoint Cut Styles

    Lumina

    Powell’s newest headjoint style, the Lumina, has a clean and energetic sound that moves quickly throughout the range with little effort. The Lumina is described as being ‘supple, yet responsive’. This is a headjoint with style and panache.

    Philharmonic

    The Philharmonic headjoint is readily identified by its broader embouchure plate, which makes it the most resistant of the styles offered by Powell. Articulation is crisp and clean, and this style is capable of broad dynamic and timbral ranges. A player can create a rich tone with extraordinary carrying power and focus.

    Soloist

    The Soloist headjoint is the newest addition to the headjoint styles offered by Powell. This new style was developed in collaboration with renowned flutist, Ransom Wilson. The Soloist headjoint features strength and flexibility. It offers a strong sound which allows the player to fill a hall, as well as complete command for performing the quietest of passages. The embouchure plate, which is similar to the Boston style, provides the player with quick, responsive articulation while a new style of undercutting gives the headjoint its strong, full color.

    Venti

    The name "Venti" encapsulates the concept of a headjoint that allows air to pass freely through the instrument and beyond, giving the performer variations of flexibility, dynamics, power and sound. Powell has worked with international flautist, Paul Edmund-Davies to develop this latest headjoint style. Mr. Edmund-Davies became interested in the development of this style due to the prospect of playing on a headjoint that mirrored his experiences of singing in a cathedral choir. Paul's concept of a natural approach to the instrument incorporates an open and unrestricted style, with reference in particular to a more resonant and free 3rd octave. The result is a headjoint that allows for depth of sound through all three octaves, even pitch and dynamic range, as well as a sound that is powerful without being wild or breaking up.

  • Powell - Grenadilla Wood Flute

    Each Powell flute has a unique character, yet all bear a family resemblance. Powell instruments are made with care to exacting tolerances and, ultimately, a Powell flute or piccolo is crafted to a musical performance standard. From the first flute made in 1906 by Verne Q. Powell to today's Powell flute, the humanity of each artisan at Powell is reflected in the character of the instrument. The feel of a key or the aesthetic of a pointed arm are the subtle and telltale signs of the individuality of the flutemaker.

    The perfect marriage of old world tradition and new world design, the Powell Wooden Flute has the ability to transport your sound to a completely different spectrum of color.

    Enjoy this instrument’s warm sound and unique response with a Sterling Silver or 14K Rose Gold pinless mechanism. This instrument features the Modern Powell Scale and a metal headjoint tenon. Metal headjoints and wooden headjoints can be interchanged on this or any other of Powell's instruments.

    Grenadilla is a member of the rosewood family (Dalbergia Melanoxylon) and has been used for instrument making for centuries. Also known as African Blackwood, Grenadilla is a tremendously strong wood, making it very durable and less susceptible to cracks. Powell ages Grenadilla stock between 5-7 years before turning it into a flute body or headjoint. Like a fine wine or champagne, the aging process gives Powell Grenadilla instruments a fuller body with more levels of sophistication to experience. These instruments have an organic sound which continues to unfold as the instrument is played over time.

  • Powell - Piccolo Kingwood

    General - Powell Piccolo Kingwood

    A handmade Powell piccolo is lyrical and produces a dark, sweet tone that makes the instrument sound like an extension of the flute. Powell makes piccolos from Grenadilla and Kingwood. Artisans carefully select only the highest quality wood, and promptly discard any flawed pieces. These piccolos represent the epitome of aesthetics and sweetness in a piccolo. The acoustic qualities of a handmade Powell piccolo are matched by its reliability, best met in the quality of its toneholes and pads. Each tonehole is lined with a black synthetic bushing. The handmade piccolos are finished with Powell's patented pads that provide outstanding sealing, durability, and resonance. All handmade Powell piccolos include the following standard and common features:

    • conical bore
    • Powell scale
    • pitch, A=442
    • hand undercut toneholes for ease of playing and enhanced resonance
    • standard headjoint cut

  • Powell - Platinum Headjoint

    Each Powell flute has a unique character, yet all bear a family resemblance. Powell instruments are made with care to exacting tolerances and, ultimately, a Powell flute or piccolo is crafted to a musical performance standard. From the first flute made in 1906 by Verne Q. Powell to today's Powell flute, the humanity of each artisan at Powell is reflected in the character of the instrument. The feel of a key or the aesthetic of a pointed arm are the subtle and telltale signs of the individuality of the flutemaker.

    The most important part of the flute, a hand-cut headjoint can improve any instrument and can offer a player many new options for sound and response. Each handmade Powell headjoint is cut by hand and tested by a professional flutist at Powell’s workshop.

    Each platinum Powell headhjoint pairs a platinum tube (.010 wall) with a 10k gold lip plate, crown, and option of 10k gold or platinum riser. Every headjoint is available with any of Powell’s premier headjoint cut styles.

    Headjoint Cut Styles

    Lumina

    Powell’s newest headjoint style, the Lumina, has a clean and energetic sound that moves quickly throughout the range with little effort. The Lumina is described as being ‘supple, yet responsive’. This is a headjoint with style and panache.

    Philharmonic

    The Philharmonic headjoint is readily identified by its broader embouchure plate, which makes it the most resistant of the styles offered by Powell. Articulation is crisp and clean, and this style is capable of broad dynamic and timbral ranges. A player can create a rich tone with extraordinary carrying power and focus.

    Soloist

    The Soloist headjoint is the newest addition to the headjoint styles offered by Powell. This new style was developed in collaboration with renowned flutist, Ransom Wilson. The Soloist headjoint features strength and flexibility. It offers a strong sound which allows the player to fill a hall, as well as complete command for performing the quietest of passages. The embouchure plate, which is similar to the Boston style, provides the player with quick, responsive articulation while a new style of undercutting gives the headjoint its strong, full color.

    Venti

    The name "Venti" encapsulates the concept of a headjoint that allows air to pass freely through the instrument and beyond, giving the performer variations of flexibility, dynamics, power and sound. Powell has worked with international flautist, Paul Edmund-Davies to develop this latest headjoint style. Mr. Edmund-Davies became interested in the development of this style due to the prospect of playing on a headjoint that mirrored his experiences of singing in a cathedral choir. Paul's concept of a natural approach to the instrument incorporates an open and unrestricted style, with reference in particular to a more resonant and free 3rd octave. The result is a headjoint that allows for depth of sound through all three octaves, even pitch and dynamic range, as well as a sound that is powerful without being wild or breaking up.
