If Verne Q. Powell was alive today and making flutes, what would they look like? What would they sound like? Which qualities of his era would he keep; which modernities would he adopt? Surely he would work to keep the DNA of the flute as he knew it, a simple and elegant creature full of grace and finesse. And surely he would be impressed with the modern developments in scale and padding. Could such an instrument exist, bridging the gap between tradition and innovation?

The new Vintage model Custom Powell Flute does exactly this. With a modern scale and Straubinger pads, this instrument reclaims the charm of Verne Q. Powell’s era. It features a “hard, thin” tube, a traditional pinned mechanism, smaller arms, and lower posts. One can have the aesthetic and ergonomics of a vintage Powell flute, while retaining the response and consistency required by a modern player.
