The late Edward Almeida was an American flute maker and a former owner of the flute company Powell. Favouring silver to gold due to its consistent nature, Almeida was renowned for his precision engeering and his flutes demonstrate exquisite craftmanship. His flutes are highly regarded and sought after by professional players.
This Almeida is a prime example of his beautiful handifwork. The flute has not been through our workshop and is sold as seen. It could do with a good service, and will play brilliantly once done.
In the early 1960's Powell sold his firm to four of his employees, among them his own protégé, Edward Almeida. in the 1970s Almeida set up his own shop and, assisted by his son Geoff, began making a very limited number of flutes exemplifying the quality and craftsmanship of the older Powell flutes. In his peak he was making about 50 flutes a year. Since his death in the early 1990s his flutes have been much sought after as used instruments.
