Powell 2100 Conservatory Solid Silver Flute – Sterling silver mechanism

 

Superb Powell 2100 Conservatory solid silver flute for sale. The name “Powell” has meant excellence in flutes since Verne Q. Powell established his own workshop in 1927. Powell made his first conservatory flute in 1928, called the Commercial Model.  These flutes had drawn tone holes and plain cups with Y-arms.

The Powell shop discontinued the Commercial flute in 1988 but continued to receive requests for a conservatory model instrument.  Since flautists were expressing a preference for French-style pointed arms, rather than the Y-arms found on the Commercial Model, Powell embarked upon a complete redesign of the old Commercial Model in 1991. Powell set to work on the new design. Finally, after two years of development, during which it was tested by customers around the world, the new flute was introduced.  It was named the 2100 in anticipation of the twenty-first century. 

The 3100 came shortly afterwards and both models have since been changed to the ‘Conservatory’ model. This particular flute has been fitted with new (ultra slim) pads and is offered in excellent, fully adjusted and polished condition, ready to play. The specification is open holes with drawn tone holes, inline G keys with Powell’s E-ring and the upgrade of a B-foot.
