Buy second hand with confidence
Unless stated otherwise, all of our pre-owned, ex-demo and ex-display instruments are checked, set up or serviced in our workshop prior to sale.
The Powell .925 Solid Custom Handmade flute has superb projection and clarity of sound over the range of the flute. Weightier and slightly more resistant than the Handmade Conservatory, this flute has a big sound with a large dynamic range.
This flute has recently been serviced privately and is in fantastic working order. It has some minor scuffs and scrapes which are to be expected from an instrument of this age.
In 1916, Verne Powell joined the Wm. S. Haynes Company to make wooden flutes and piccolos. By 1926, Powell was the shop foreman at Haynes and was running much of the business. Later that year, he left Haynes to make his own flutes. In 1927, Verne Q. Powell Flutes, Inc. was incorporated at 265 Huntington Drive in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1961, Powell sold his company to four employees who ran the company until 1984 when two employees, Jim Phelan and Rob Viola, became the owners. In 1986 Steven Wasser bought the shares belonging to Mr. Viola and gained controlling ownership. Jim Phelan left the company in 1989 to pursue other interests, and Mr. Wasser became the full owner. Each Powell flute has a unique character, yet all bear a family resemblance. They are made with care to exacting tolerances. Ultimately, a Powell flute is crafted to a high musical performance standard.
