Manufacturer's Description

Time-honored, the world loves the sound of a 14K Rose Gold Powell Flute. Capable of intense color changes, the balance of intimacy and power are among the most valued characteristics. From rosy pinks and vibrant oranges, to noble blues and verdant greens, the sound flows through the instrument with grace and ease. The combination of metals in this alloy makes it the perfect balance between lighter karat golds and heavier karat golds. 

Our Description

The Powell 14k Custom Handmade flute is designed for players who are looking for a richer, darker sound than the .925 Solid Custom Handmade Flute, whilst keeping the free-blowing and excellent projective attributes of the Powell sound.

This flute has excellent projection and beautiful colours, it allows the player to utilise every aspect and potential in their playing.

General Condition

This is an incredibly vibrant flute, with the warmth of 14k rose gold throughout, and the added benefit of both C and B footjoints. The headjoint has been modified with a 14k J R Lafin lip plate and riser with Adler Wings. The flute would benefit from and general service, but is in otherwise good playing order. 

About Powell

In 1916, Verne Powell joined the Wm. S. Haynes Company to make wooden flutes and piccolos. By 1926, he was the shop foreman and was running much of the business at Haynes; later that year, he left Haynes to make his own flutes and Verne Q. Powell Flutes, Inc. was incorporated.

The instruments were immediately recognized as the very best a flutist could play and endorsements flowed in from flutists around the globe. In 1928, he completed his first all 14K Gold flute; soon piccolos and alto flutes were added. By 1930 the brand had representation in the Boston, Detroit, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Baltimore, and New York Orchestras. There were flutes which had a life of their own; #365 the “World’s Fair” Platinum flute of William Kincaid, #900 the only flute ever made entirely of 14K White Gold, #1142 the “Signature” Flute.

In 2016 Verne Q. Powell Flutes, Inc. was purchased by Buffet Crampon, joining nine other brands of wind instruments to complete the largest group of wind instrument manufacturers in the world.
