Edward Almeida Shop

Edward Almeida's flute making career began in 1948 at the Powell factory in Boston, under the tutelage of Verne Q Powell himself. In the early 1960's Powell sold his firm to four of his employees, among them his own protégé, Edward Almeida. In 1969, Almeida set up his own workshop and began making a very limited number of flutes in the style and craftsmanship of the first Powell flutes. At his peak he was making about 50 flutes a year; favouring silver over gold due to its consistent nature, Almeida was renowned for his precision engeering and his flutes demonstrate exquisite craftmanship. Since his death in the early 1990s his flutes have become much sought after as classic used instruments.
