Powell's wooden flute, introduced in 1997, was so innovative that it changed flutists' perceptions of what a wooden flute could do. The elegant design is comfortable, projects well, and possessed the acoustical qualities of wood.

Powell's crafts people are both gentle and rigorous when working with exotic woods. Each piece of wood is scrupulously examined and culled for the slightest flaws, so that flutists can enjoy high quality instruments that are beautiful and durable.

Headjoint Cuts:
Philharmonic - 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.

C foot, 14K rose gold keys, and other SPECIAL ORDER OPTIONS may be available for this model.  Please contact us for more information.
