America's #1 flute specialty house since 1983.
The orchestral repertoire makes many demands on the piccolo. The player depends on this instrument to confidently produce a strong, colorful sound that is in tune on the high notes of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 8, while projecting in the low passages of Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite. A Powell piccolo produces a dark, lyrical tone that makes the instrument sound like an extension of the flute.
