Verne Powell first started making flutes in 1927 and the Powell company are world renowned flute makers to this day. The Powell Custom solid silver flute has been the ”gold standard” of the flute world for more than 80 years. They have been celebrated for their flexibility of colour, ease of response and reliability. Every Custom flute continues this tradition and is handmade to exacting specifications by Powell’s skilled artisans in Maynard, Massachusetts.
This particular flute is a Custom model in beautiful overhauled and restored condition. It has soldered tone holes, 0.14 wall thickness, french key arms, open-holes, inline G and B foot and is pitched at 442Hz. It has been newly repadded with Lucien Deluxe pads and it has that lovely full, bold Powell sound.
This is a beautiful instrument and plays like a dream. If you are a lover of Powell then this is in my view the best that you will find.
